The explosive rise of dot-co as a popular domain is in large part because many businesses have brands and trademarks that they would like to register but have been taken in .com. But, even big businesses like Twitter and Overstock.com have gotten in on the deal and have become early dot-co adopters.
The suffix dot-co is universally recognized as an abbreviation for company. In a dot-co registry survey, 75 percent of respondents equated dot-co with "company," "corporation," or "commerce." In fact, nearly 50 countries use dot-co as a second-level domain name to depict just that, such as co.uk and co.jp.
Don’t miss out on your opportunity to register your trademark or brand name with a dot-co domain today with EnCirca.
