Do You Need a .CO Domain?

If you’re like me, you only watch the Super Bowl for the commercials. One of the better ones happened to be all about .CO domains. They are all the rage right now, and everyone seems to want one. Heck, my folks are here visiting right now, and my Dad was wondering if he should get one for himself.

I feel they’re pretty “dot” useless. They’re about as interesting as .INFO domains are. At the end of the day, what do people think of when they think of a domain name? It’s a .COM – duh!

I think that .CO will end up becoming a hotbed of spammers and malicious people. They’ll snap them up and make them have the same name as popular sites… then park their icky stuff there. If you accidentally try to go to the popular (real) .COM website and forget the letter M – you’re screwed. You’re going to end up on this bad landing page.

I have nothing against Columbia. But I think that if you gobble up .CO domains, you’re wasting money.
