.Co trends for September 2012
In a new blog post at Cointernet.co Crystal Peterson went over some trends for the extension, check out the blog post for some charts and other info.
Interestingly enough Bermuda becomes one of the Top 10 countries for .CO registrations for the first time at the #10 position. Both China and India have been increasing market share over the past few months with new registrations to be in competition with Germany for the #6, #7 and #8 positions.
Through the first quarter of 2012, the .CO namespace showed a total of 76.4% active domains. Of that, 22% are considered live dedicated sites and 41% are considered redirected. The remaining active sites are made up of parking (2%) and referral sites (11%). This shows a decrease in referral and redirected sites and an increase in live dedicated sites over the 4th quarter of 2011.
