    Well, I dont know whether you people know,

    But, Name.com is having a promo running at the moment, may be for this month, which makes it $7.77 for .COM and .CO domains.


    For free whois, use the Coupon : FREEWHOIS and you get it right there.



    I just ran through some .co domains and seems like a hell lot of them are not taken yet.

    Eg : WhitehatSEO.co is not taken yet, and I am sure someone would love to have it with them. (I dont really need it lol!)

    is .co considered to be the next tld .
    i means i see it priced as same as the tld. how is its impact in teams of seo/ranking and.

    if a keyword is unavailable with .com/net/org the next would you look at .co or .info

    Exactly! But well, I see people preferring .co rather than .info if they are for the long run :)

    I asked Google themselves and they came back and said words along the lines of "We will be treating .Co equal to .Com"

    They even allow geo targeting in webmaster tools now, which they didn't when it was first opened up beyond Columbia.

    So yeah, it's a real TLD now.

    Why use name.com for .com even with free whois privacy. You can buy the same on internetbs.net for 7.49$ with free whois privacy so save yourself 28 cents. :D And FYI, it doesn't costs the registrar a single penny to turn on whois privacy on the domains they register. For .co, name.com is still good to go with. Now they are promoting the new tld even more before.

    Just to chime in

    I bought 3 .co and used the FreeWhois code as well

    I'll be adding autoblogs to them - so see how they go compared to the others - but I'm not too concerned as I really wanted a little diversification


    So yup thanks for the heads up and have a nice day

    So what real value does .co have? I see it as just another tld along with the numerous other countless wasteful tdls they release every year. I must say though I do see value in this extension because it is a typo of .com and that is all. Just another way ICANN is trying to milk the system. I foresee .comm .con .c .cim and .vom in their future based on the success of this .co. Ridiculous:S

    You get more chance of getting that XYZ.Co domain that has already been taken in the .Com variant.

    Yes, I rank #2 for a pretty high searched keyword with exact domain matching.

    Yes, my well-known site (.co) (less than a year old) with two highly competitive keywords is ranked on page 2 Google after some good BH/WH SEO work.

    I like .co better than .info and .biz.
