The General Availability period for the ccTLD, .CO (Colombia), begins today, 20th July at 7pm GMT. General Availability names will be registered on a first come first served basis and all .CO names will be available for registration with the exception of the registry’s reserved list and those domain designated for a premium name auction.

After more than 26,000 domains were fulfilled during the Trademark Sunrise and the projected tens of thousands more that will be provisioned as part of the Land Rush Period, it is expected that General Availability for .CO could be the largest single day for a ccTLD registration since .EU launched in 2005. The second level .CO will be marketed by the registry as an “open-ccTLD” and just like a generic domain (gTLD) .CO will be made available globally to any business or individual who wishes to register a name without any restrictions or local contact requirements.
