Customers can step to the front of the line and pre-register for all phases of the new .CO introduction

Vancouver, Wash. — March 18, 2010 — Dotster Inc., a leading provider of Internet business services, is now offering pre-registration for the new .CO domain. Dotster is one of the few .CO-accredited registrars that offers .CO in all phases of availability.

.CO is a new domain extension that gives businesses and individuals more choice in branding their online presence with a truly global, recognizable and credible domain name. A .CO domain is an excellent alternative domain extension to .COM, .NET or .BIZ. Recognized universally as the abbreviation for "company", .CO is the ideal domain to extend any brand's online presence.

Clint Page, Dotster CEO, said, ".CO domains will go fast. With much of the .COM inventory already taken, I see .CO as a way for new businesses to establish themselves, and for existing businesses to both protect and expand their brands."

The phases of the .CO launch include:

  • Phase 1, Local Sunrise - Colombian Trademarks: April 1st — 20th. Applicants must hold a trademark registered by the Colombian Trademark Office on or before July 30, 2008
  • Phase 2, Global Sunrise - Other Trademarks: April 26th — June 10th. Applicants must hold a trademark registered with national effect on or before July 30, 2008
  • Phase 3, LandRush: June 21st — July 13th. No restrictions, domains available ahead of those sold in General Availability.
