Gets 40,500 UK Exacts
(Also have Ferries.co)
Both good names, extension will get more popular IMO. Give it time to realise value.
Value lies in development. .co typically 1% the value of .com but it is becoming more valuable.
Thanks for your comment. Never heard of that 1% value ratio before.
Will take it onboard. I would have thought though that that would have to vary on the actual name/traffic potential/market etc.
As popular as the tld gets, it is always going to be Colombian.
Might be so, might not be so - I'm not a great believer in "always" ...
Wasn't .com the US TLD?
Yes, .co would take more owrk. But there are several ways to make sure that the search engines make a site country specific.
I have seen alot of .co sites ranking high and in some cases higher than the .co.uk version, but still it isnt a "correct" tld for UK use and its value is always going to reflect that.
I see no harm in putting affiliate sites on them though and milking them for aslong as possible!
As ever, the value is in the eye of the beholder.
Thanks for your feedback,
No .com has always meant .commercial, just the yanks where more reluctant to adopt their ccld .US as and when it became available - although thats very slowly changing.
I have to agree with Mat on the reseller side of things .Co indeed have sold for some good prices where they either directly appeal to the Colombian Market (which is quite large and relatively popular) or have overwhelming American generic value. Dnjournal.com has archived all the public sales of .Co
I could imagine words/domain like 'red.co' or 'joe.co' holding that "snappy" appeal
I sit corrected! It's always a long shot with these, I know.
I'll do some development later this year on this one and Ferries.co which I also have.
Thanks for the heads up re DNJournal. I'll have a look.
Separate names with a comma.
