I've seen more and more people using ".co" and I wanted to know your thoughts on it? Obviously it is the country code TLD of Columbia, but most of our customers won't know that and it sounds very professional like ".com"

Would you use it?

Well, it is ok, I bought it to go to my collection of Domains for the business, but I still think it is just a hyped up domain which is worthless?

IMO it's kinda worthless. If you register a .co and the .com was taken by someone else, chances are your visitors will bump into the .com site instead of your .co site..

That might be true. It's tough to get a good ".com" these days.

In that case, it's better to pay for the .com or go with a less desirable name and get both the .com and the .co...

To the OP, It's hard to say. But in the end, if someone else already has the .com, it's best to find something else or try to buy a domain off of a seller.

I'm not sure how I feel about it -- it certainly doesn't seem unprofessional, 'cheap', or anything, but I don't think I would use it myself.

.co domain currently is not popular. But as you said that it is country code of COlumbia, may be in some months or just 2-3 years, it can be popular for Columbia as the domain extensions are very popular country-wise.

I'd probably have the .co if .com & .net wasn't available.

dont have any .co domains, but several of my clients do.

when i look for a domain i will looks for .com and .co.uk being available if either one is taken then i will just think of a new domain until i find one suitable with both available.

With country tlds i think it is only the .us extensions that can be taken off you if you are not based or have a USA postal address

I stay away from them. If I can't get .com, then I may consider .net or a country specific extension if it fits the niche I'm in. But I think .co is like the push that was on when .ws started up. It'll die down soon, in my opinion.

It was a really Viral domain but it didnt go any further they were expecting to take over .com with .co but .com is the bigest used tld. So my opinion the .co domain is worthless.
