Big .co sale finally completed; landrush auctions begin.
e.Co, which was auctioned for $81,000 in a charity auction in June, has finally changed hands. Although the whois for the domain name still shows CO Internet, the buyer has informed me that the domain name was transferred to his registrar account today and that he paid for the domain weeks ago. It will be interesting to see what the buyers have planned.
In other .co news, the landrush auctions began today. Approximately 2,550 .co domain names that received more than one landrush application will be auctioned at Pool (information is available here). Landrush applicants have already plunked down about $300 per domain, and will now have to pay an additional amount if they wish to secure the domains.
