Blacknight registrar and hosting company helps Irish businesses get online with a global .CO domain

Blacknight Internet Solutions announced it will provide free .CO domain name registrations for one year to Getting Business Online Program participants.

Ireland’s largest domain name registrar and hosting company Blacknight, in conjunction with Google, An Post and the Country & City Enterprise Boards, have been host to the Getting Business Online Program. The program is an initiative aimed at helping small Irish businesses develop an Internet presence by providing the opportunity to create free websites to expand their reach.

“We are so honored to be working with Blacknight to offer Irish entrepreneurs the .CO domain names they need to help get their businesses online quickly, easily -- and absolutely for free,” said Crystal Peterson, Director of Channel Marketing of .CO Internet. “Ireland continues to emerge as a leading business and tech hub, and Blacknight is smack dab in the middle of the entire ecosystem. We couldn't be more excited about this partnership -- and about helping Ireland's businesses to grow and prosper.”

.CO has been added to the list of domain extensions available for free registration from Blacknight through the Getting Business Online Program which was launched May 2011.

“We are delighted to partner with the .CO registry and offer Irish business short memorable domain names without any extra bureaucracy. .CO has established itself as the ‘go to’ domain name for startups and business worldwide, so offering these free to Irish business is the natural evolution of the program” said Michele Neylon, CEO of Blacknight.
