Finally last night I got an e-mail from the .CO registry concerning the land rush applications I placed.
This is the first notice or any information regarding the land rush applications I have received since placing the orders.
The first notice tells you to set up your account:
“”As a result of your recent application(s) for a .CO domain name, you have been registered as a possible participant in the .CO Domain Auctions. Your account has been automtically created based on the information provided with your application. Before you can participate in any .CO auction, you must activate your account.””
You then click on a link which is already coded with the email on the application and you select a password.
About 6 hours after I activated by account I got a notice for each of the 35 auctions I will be in.
The auctions all have a different starting date.
The earliest start date I have on my auction is on August 9.
The latest start date is September 6th.
Each auction runs for 7 days.
All auctions end at 12am GMT which is 8pm EST and 5PM PST and 2am in much of Europe.
Although the rules are not stated for the auction yet, since they will be powered by Pool.com, we assume the auctions will be extended when bids are received in the last minutes for additional time so if your going to play in the land rush auctions and live on the east coast plan on some very early or some very late dinners for a month.
All auctions start at $10 (not counting the land rush fee which was $199-$249)
Good to see some notices coming in on these.
