.co Domain Names Available to Trademark Owners on April 2622/04/2010
On April 26, parties who own a registered trademark in any jurisdiction may apply for a .co domain name. .co is formerly the top level country code for Columbia and .co domain names are regarded as having some value as an abbreviation for the term “company”. Also, Internet users who mistakenly exclude the letter “m” when attempting to type a .com domain name will be directed to a website with the corresponding .co domain name.
We recommend that owners of registered trademarks consider applying to register a .co domain name corresponding with their trademarks as April 26 approaches.
