Company will slash prices on premium domains and offer many reserved domains at regular prices.
.Co.com, a new third level domain name option, is dropping prices on premium domain names and has removed tens of thousands of domain names from its reserved names list.
The company released a list of the previously reserved domain names that are now available for registration in a blog post.
The list includes some metrics, but not the actual traffic the domains receive. Many third level .co.com domains receive traffic because some ccTLDs end in co.(ccTLD). When the registry drops the prices on premium domains, it says that some will be cashflow positive with just one year of domain parking.
I imagine that means it’s making steep pricecuts. Here are some of the premium domains and their prices today:
Some people have paid fairly strong prices already. Two public sales include CouponCodes.co.com for $2,500 and Istanbul.co.com for $3,750.
The company says it will release actual traffic data on some of its premium domain names in the future.
The previously reserved domains are available today in landrush. Retail landrush pricing is about $75-$100. If you wait until general availability on July 8 you might be able to scoop the domain names up for about $40.
