June 21, 2010 – (HOSTSEARCH.COM) – Leading domain registration company, LCN.com
, is urging customers to secure .co domain names as early as possible within the Landrush phase, which has officially begun today.
In what is billed as the most important new domain launch of the past 25 years, the .CO domain has now entered Landrush, the first stage of the .CO launch schedule which non trademark holders can register .CO domains. During Landrush, savvy individuals can secure the most commercially valuable domains or protect their existing brands.
Mark Boost, Managing Director, LCN.com, said: “The .CO Landrush phase provides a fantastic opportunity for individuals who wish to register exclusive domain names, whose .com and .co.uk variations have previously been taken. The potential value of securing short and memorable domain names is incredible.
“While nearly every conceivable easy to remember domain has been snapped up on the .com and .co.uk extensions, the launch of the .CO offers everyone the chance to register any domain name they like.”
The final phase of the .CO domain launch schedule, General Availability, will start on 20 July. During General Availability, domains which have not been registered during the Landrush phase will become available for registration on a first-come-first-served basis.
LCN.com is currently taking registrations for the Landrush phase and pre-registrations for the General Availability phase. In the interest of fairness, LCN.com will only take one bid for each potential domain, administered on a first-come-first served basis.
LCN.com has been providing competitively priced domain registration since 2000 and has participated during all of the launch phases of the .tel, .eu, and .me domain extensions on the behalf of its customers over the past 5 years.
