A promotion running right now at Blacknight will get you more than 63% off the price of the first year on dot-CO domain names – and open the door to international networking and business opportunities.
.CO is a shortened version of .COM – that’s one way to look at it. It’s leaner, quicker, simpler – and offers another chance to find the name you want. Startups, and online businesses in particular, are known by their domain names – and the .CO extension identifies a business as part of a specific online community.
That’s because the .CO domain registry has specifically chosen to associate with entrepreneur culture: with innovators, inventors and startups.
With .CO, you get more than just a web address. Every .CO domain name comes with free access to the .CO Membership Program. Members enjoy access to industry events and networking functions, and get access to special deals, as well as having the opportunity to promote themselves to the .CO community.
COmmunity – COnnection – COmmunication
This video will give you a feel for the idea. Originally produced for a US audience, we redubbed the voiceover with an Irish flavour.
An International Advantage for SEO
It’s important to stress that .CO is treated as an international domain for the purposes of SEO, just like .COM or .ORG. Its history goes back before the latest wave of new generic Top Level Domains (TLDs), when it was originally the country code domain for Colombia. Now, however, Google treats it as a generic international domain for SEO purposes, and allows you to target it geographically in Webmaster Tools. CO stands for “company” around the world and is quick and easy to type and remember.
Blacknight has launched a promotion offering .CO domains for just €10.99 ex VAT (that’s 63% off!). Coming soon: we’ll share case studies of fast growing, innovative companies who are using .CO to power their success. And we’d love to hear your stories too – leave a comment or send me a mail!
