Amsterdam, 14 April 2009 – The CO.NL Operator is glad to announce the opening of the Go Live period, starting tomorrow, at 2:00 pm GMT. Application requests can be made by the general public without any restriction or priority rights, and will be accepted on a first come, first served basis. As usual, a local presence in the Netherlands is not required. CO.NL has engendered great interest from brand owners, companies and individuals. Sander Scholten, CO.NL General Manager, comments, “We are delighted by the results we have achieved and people’s engaged response to this new International extension. The .CO.NL is already seen as a successful alternative way to enter the Dutch market and position a brand or a company as part of the International community. The Go Live period is an opportunity for anyone to do exactly the same”. The generic names and brands registered during the first phases are already active in the namespace, gathering a lot of International traffic and page views from Internet users. Scholten adds “The suffix “.co.” is used and understood in many addresses worldwide, which makes registering a name ending in .co.nl the right choice. Take advantage of the Go live period to get yours!” Anyone willing to take part in the .CO.NL Go Live can choose between 50+ of the leading Registrars worldwide, whose list can be accessed here: Accredited Registrars For more information on CO.NL, visit the official website: www.domain.co.nl About the operator The CO.NL Operator was established in 2007 to manage the registration of domains with the .CO.NL ending.
