.Co landrush proves significant interest in securing .co domains.
The .Co landrush application period has closed, and the domain name registry has received 27,905 applications during the period. That brings the total applications received to date (including sunrise) to 39,000.
2,523 domain names received more than one landrush application, which means they’ll be auctioned off on Pool. 70 domain names had 10 or more applicants. 451 applicants submitted more than 10 applications each, and applications came from 133 countries.
Although each registrar had different pricing for landrush, the total paid to date for applications and registration is well over $10 million.
