Leading domain name registration provider Network Solutions® announces the beginning of the Landrush period for the new .CO country code top level domain extension (ccTLD). Open to everyone, from businesses to individuals, the Landrush phase begins at 2 p.m. EDT on June 21, 2010, and runs until 2 p.m. EDT on July 13, 2010. The retail price for a Landrush .CO domain name is $270 for the first year.

".CO domain name offers businesses and individuals an immediately recognizable global branding opportunity for their web presence" said Kurt Gastrock, Network Solutions' Senior Vice President of Product Management. "It gives them the ability to register a domain that conveys who they are, what they do or what their business is all about."

The .CO Landrush period is where interested parties can seek to register domains not previously registered through the Grandfathering and Sunrise phases, or otherwise reserved by the Registry or Restricted by Policy. If more than one applicant applies for the same domain, then an auction process will be used to allocate domain names.

Some of the general policies regarding the .CO extension include:

  •     Any person or entity in the world can register .CO domains
  •     There are no domicile or burdensome documentation requirements
  •     Registration period is between one and five years, subject to renewal
  •     Registrants can easily transfer domain names to Network Solutions
