DomainMonster gets .co accreditation

DomainMonster has announced that it’s the first UK-based domain name registrar to get a .co accreditation.

The partnership comes as .CO Internet expands its registrar channel beyond the initial 10 that were approved when it launched a year ago.

The registry announced in April that it would add 20 new registars over the next 12 months.

DomainMonster has been selling .co domains as a reseller of Colombian registrar Domino Amigo for the last year.

The company says did a pretty brisk trade on the first day of .co availability, securing more .co names in the first 10 minutes than any other registrar, with a 90% success rate.

I’ve heard from a few places recently that Go Daddy may have even asked DomainMonster to submit launch-day registrations on its behalf.

The company also has a new reseller platform of its own, DomainBox, which will also make .co domains available to partners.
