The .CO Founders Program

Opportunity is exactly what the .CO Founders Program is all about. The .CO Founders Program is an initiative designed to help qualified "first movers" to proactively develop and maintain domain names with the .CO extension prior to our public launch in July. It's open to all interested applicants from bloggers to businesses to big brands and beyond. (That was a lot of alliteration!)

We developed this program to showcase great examples of the types of content that will live in the .CO namespace and to inspire future development of the space. Here's how it works. You submit a proposal describing how you will proactively develop and launch the .CO domain name of your choice before June 15th, 2010. If your proposal is approved, you'll become one of a small (and exclusive) group of .CO Founders that will help to give shape to the entire .CO name space.

In addition to securing a meaningful, memorable .CO domain name — you'll also get a jump on the competition by developing your domain name before the general public even has access to the .CO extension. Finally, you'll get the benefit of our global marketing efforts as we showcase the genius of our various .CO Founders on our website, in our advertising campaigns and in other public outreach efforts.

The .CO Founders Program is an initiative designed to engage early adopters, also known as .CO Founders, to proactively develop and maintain domains with the .CO extension prior to the public launch in July 2010.

The Fine Print: It's important to note that the .CO Founders Program is not for everyone. It is a limited time opportunity, and is only available to people and companies with a demonstrated capacity to build successful online businesses or brands — and who can commit to having a well-developed, well-funded .CO website launched by July 20th. As you will see in the terms and conditions that govern the .CO Founders Program, .CO Founder sites must be built using unique content, continuously used, and promoted aggressively with a defined marketing budget.
