    Your standard case of settling.

    I do find it amusing though how often a .CO getting launched or being advertised makes domain blog news. I guess that is how little the extension is actually used in the real world.

    When someone builds a domain on an obscure extension it certainly receives a disproportionate amount of attention in the domain world.

    Could you imagine if anytime a .COM site launched it made news?

    When a brand like Samsung uses a dot CO in its advertising campaign that is HUGE news for all other extensions other than dot com. Samsung gives the extension credibility and when other large companies do the same it is inevitable that it will affect dotcoms and their values. Whoever doesn’t see this needs to take their blinders off. I love dotcom as much as the next guy but I am a realist.

    More proof brands or campaigns don’t need a .com to reach out to a global audience.

    Brokered the acquisition of rise.net a few years ago, they are doing fantastic while the .com is gathering dust.

    Here is the text from the facebook feed:

    A pixel of you. A piece of history. Together We Rise. Upload your selfie from Facebook, Instagram, or directly from your phone to be part of game night. http://smsng.us/rise

    Seems they rather redirect a hacked up .us rather than just promote the .co. Unless people look at the browser bar they are not even going to know they are on a .co. Of course if they used the .co people would think it was a typo and go to the .com. So they smartly went this route instead. .co will have arrived when you don’t have to make some dramatic post every time you spot one being used somewhere on the web.
