Why is .co so popular?

Originally, it was introduced as country-code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Colombia, but today it can be registered and used by anyone worldwide. If you're looking for a domain extension that does it all, you shouldn't wait any longer and register your .co domain name today. It's short, memorable, and a great way to establish your brand's identity online.

Chances are, if your .com domain name is taken, you might still be able to find a dot co without needing to provide a local Columbian address or using a Trustee Service.

Is .co a good choice for my business?

Since the Colombian government allowed the .co domain to be opened for global registration in 2010, the .co domain has become a popular alternative to the classic .com domain. Many businesses use .co domains to represent a "company" or "corporation," while e-commerce businesses opt for a .co domain name as a digital home for their online shopping websites representing the term "commerce." Additionally, it can easily represent any form of “community,” making it a great choice for websites that unite people around a shared interest or cause.

Without question, it's a versatile and flexible option for everybody and can be registered for various purposes because the meaning of .co is not limited to commercial use; you can also use .co domain names for a personal website or a blog, especially if you want to show off your love for Columbia.
