Colombia has many great things to be proud of: world-class beaches, the best coffee and Sofia Vergara, to name a few. In the domain world, it is home to .CO, which is its country code top-level domain (ccTLD); however, there are no residency requirements so anyone in the world is able to register a .CO domain of their own!

Why Would I Want a .CO Domain?

If you’re one of the 47 million residents of Colombia, then a .CO domain is the perfect way to represent your beautiful homeland to the rest of the world online.

For those of us outside of Colombia, .CO is a great option that’s simple, easy to remember, and won’t take too much attention away from what’s to the left of the dot in your domain. Since it’s not used as often as .COM, you’ve also got a better chance of finding the exact domain name you’re looking for. Plus, think of all the time you’ll save people by only requiring them to type 2 letters instead of 3. That’s like half a second at least, and that adds up over time. You’re basically travelling through time at that rate.

If ‘co’ is part of your name or identity, then a .CO domain can also be good for branding. Are you a corporation? Co-op? Chief officer? Commanding officer? Corrections officer? You get the idea.

Related TLDs

If you’re considering .CO then you might also want to check out the following related TLDs before making your decision (or better yet, buy all of ‘em just to be safe):
