CO - Squatting minefield

.CO is the county code Top Level Domain (ccTLD) assigned to Colombia. Besides serving the function of a ccTLD. It is also a popular branding tool since the two letters CO are the recognizable abbreviations for Company, Commerce and Communications and of course a misspelling of COM.

Due to its popularity (over 500 000 registered domains) CO is becoming a target for squatting activities and we therefore recommend that trade mark owners, as a defensive measure, register CO domain names that match their COM domain names.
