Over 2 Million .Co Domains!

Earlier this month the .co registry announced that they’d broken the 2 million domains registered mark!

Keep It In The .Family

Controlling your own destiny. If I had to sum up why I’d recommend a custom domain name that would be the reason. Getting your own domain name isn’t hard.
