Domain investor and iGoldrush CEO, Paul Goldstone, put his high value, two-character domain, co.com up for sale today after 15 years off the market. Interestingly, all variations of the 676 two-letter .com domain names have been registered since 1998 and these valuable, highly sought after names can only be obtained on the secondary market. Co.com is expected to fetch a seven figure price and and close as one of the top domain sales. The sale is being co-brokered by DomainAdvisors and SellDomains.com and was announced in a press release this morning.
“We’re delighted to join forces with DomainAdvisors to maximize the outreach and awareness for the offering of CO.com. DomainAdvisors’ strong background and experience in premium [domain brokering makes them a great fit for this unique opportunity,” said Mr. Goldstone, owner of Co.com and founder of several successful domain related companies, including iGoldrush.com.
According to Tessa Holcomb, Founder & CEO of DomainAdvisors. “There are few names that command a multi seven-figure price tag and CO.com is one of the top domains in this small segment of the market. It’s not often that a domain name of this caliber becomes available for sale, and we are honored and excited to be representing Mr. Goldstone in this sale.”
This short, memorable name received more than 4.5 million unique visitors and 14 million page views last year and has incredible branding opportunities. CO.com is especially rare as “co” is reserved in many country domains (ccTLDs), as a nationwide “company” domain category. Domains of this caliber don’t come around very often, so it’ll be exciting to watch how the potential sale proceeds and is finalized.
