2 Years of .CO: Happy Birthday to Our Inspired .Community!

It was just two years ago that we launched the .CO domain to the world — and set our sights on becoming the web address of choice for the world's next great businesses, brands and big ideas to grow online. And what a great two years it has been — filled with trials and tribulations, incredible challenges, exciting victories, and lots of fun!

When we launched, there was lots of uncertainty as to where the extension would go. People questioned whether the world really needed "yet another domain extension." Fortunately, our team knew the answer all along — and the market has shown us that there is a huge hunger for a space on the web for innovation and opportunity to thrive. We have tapped into an exciting community of people with big dreams and the passion to breathe life into their ideas — and we are inspired every day by the cool things they are building on .CO!

With the help of our awesome friends and partners in the startup community, the domain industry and Universe at large — we stand where we are today — a .COmmunity of innovative, fresh and inspiring individuals who are building the future together. A BIG thank you goes out to each and every one of you! In your honor, we've put together a pretty cool info-graphic that highlights some of our wonderful partners and .CO-ers (although we couldn't even begin to fit them all on this graphic!)

Share this Info-graphic – We invite you to celebrate the achievements we've made together, one URL at a time. Please share our celebratory excitement and pass this info-graphic around to your friends, followers and fans — Happy Birthday to US! (Click to See Full Size)
