July 20, 2010 – (HOSTSEARCH.COM) – Leading UK domain registration company, LCN.com
, is predicting a spike in web use at 7pm BST as individuals and businesses rush to secure the new .CO domain name extension when it goes on general release.
LCN.com is urging customers to pre-order their desired .CO domain in advance of the official launch through its pre-registration system. It’s completely free to do and puts the requested domain name at the head of the queue when global general release opens at 7pm BST.
As one of the most successful domain registrars to participate in domain extension launches over the past 5 years, LCN.com is confident the .CO will outsell all other extensions which have been released in the past decade.
Mark Boost, Managing Director, LCN.com, said: “Today’s .CO launch is set to be the biggest domain launch in LCN.com’s 11 year history. While nearly every conceivable easy to remember domain has been snapped up on the .com and .co.uk extensions, the launch of.CO offers everyone the chance to register any domain name they like on a memorable, global extension.
“We would encourage customers to beat the rush at 7pm today by using our pre-registration system. This will give them the best chance of securing their domain by automatically attempting to register it the second CO Internet, the official .CO registry, starts accepting submissions. It’s a service we’re providing at no extra cost to give LCN.com’s customers the upper hand in the rush for .CO domains.”
LCN.com is the only registrar participating in the .CO launch to offer a free web hosting (valued at £50/$76) to all customers who successfully register a .CO domain before midnight tonight. This decision has been made by the company to take any additional cost or trouble out of developing a full website on the new .CO domain.
LCN.com has been providing competitively priced domain registration since 2000 and has successfully participated in all of the launch phases of the .tel, .eu, and .me domain extensions on the behalf of its customers over the past 5 years.
