i have been going back and forth with .co domains about whether they will continue to grow due to a lack of good .com's and .net's so more people may register .co's, or on the other hand they may just fizzle out like other extensions have in the past. There are a couple of pros here as the .co registry are marketing it hard and they are putting big advertsing budgets into trying to continue it's growth. In addition it sounds similar to a .com and can get typo traffic.
I have been thinking after a long time of monitoring it, that it could see solid growth in demand and value over the coming years.
Therefore, i have been in discussions with a couple of domain sellers for some generic words and also some cities. For example the kind of domains i mean is: might.co, increased.co etc. A couple of the domains get over 100,000 exacts a month and a couple get over 50,000 exacts. For the city it is one like valencia.co etc. I have been agreeing and negotiating down to about $300-400 a domain!
What do people think of the .co situation and future potential, and also of those kind of domain names and if people think they could have real strong value in the coming years.
