Get the domain of your dreams with .co
Originally, .co was created as the geographic domain for Colombia. However, at a time when the most popular domains are already oversaturated, buying a .co domain name offers you the perfect alternative to the more traditional .com. Thanks to .co, you can get the domain name you want and that matches your brand identity.
Enter the international market with .co
Expand into international markets with .co, a very effective domain for extending your geographic reach. With .com's oversaturation, .co has attracted start-ups and businesses that cannot or do not want to use .com.
As such, .co enjoys an excellent reputation among English-speaking internet users, in whom it naturally inspires confidence.
Assert your professional identity with a .co domain name
For the majority of US internet users, a .co domain name is immediately identifiable as a professional site, due to its similarity to the term "company." Choosing .co for your website lets you project a professional image, both domestically and internationally.
