According to the .Co Registry, effective immediately, the .CO Registry has listed approximately 1,100, two-character premium .CO domain names for sale on GoDaddy.
The two-character domain names are available through GoDaddy’s Aftermarket and will be available soon on the GoDaddy domain availability check, making these premium digital assets widely available to GoDaddy’s customer base of SMBs and global businesses.
The two-character .CO domain names now listed on the GoDaddy platform include LL, , L#, #L, and ## combinations.
The domain names currently range in price from $10,000 on the low end (for #L combinations, like 5x.co) to $100,000 on the high end (for super premium LL combinations, like dr.co and iq.co) and all are available on a Buy It Now (BIN) basis.
As the secondary market for .CO domain names continues to flourish, these prices are subject to future modification.
Until now, the .CO Registry had reserved all of the two-character premium .CO domain names, and had been the singular point of contact for the sale and management of these coveted names.
The .CO Registry curated the allocation of the domain names early on to ensure they were well placed in the hands of customers who would use the domains in a meaningful and memorable way, including, for example:
CS.co – Cisco uses cs.co for its global social media efforts
OM.co – Om Malik, founder of GigaOM, uses om.co for his personal blog
FI.co –The Founder Institute, the world’s largest startup accelerator, uses fi.co as its global brand
UP.co –Up Global, the partnership between Startup America and Startup Weekend, has branded itself up.co.
H2.co – The premier global leadership network for the digital industry is on h2.co.
Lori Anne Wardi VP of Brand of .CO. is quoted as saying:
“At this point, the demand for premium two-character .CO domain names is far too great for us to continue to manage exclusively in-house.”
“GoDaddy is the perfect partner to help us start expanding our distribution channel to the world of SMBs and global businesses who are looking for short, memorable premium domain names to launch their big ideas.”
Paul Nicks Director of Domain Name Aftermarket at Godaddy is quoted as saying:
