Jul 22, 2010 (11:07 AM EDT)


LONDON, July 22, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Domainmonster today released their statistics for the recent .CO domain name launch, confirming their ability to secure the world's most popular domain names.

During the 20th July launch, Domainmonster secured the largest number of domain names for its customers than any other registrar in the all-important first 10 minutes of the first come first served domain launch. Securing the coveted No. 1 spot during the opening minutes, Domainmonster secured key generic, dictionary and place names fulfilling pre-orders with a success rate of more than 90%, as the launch continued.

The .CO registry registered nearly 250,000 domains in just the first 24 hours of regular operation and is continuing to grow by the hour at break neck speed. With e-commerce giant Overstock already announcing its purchase of O.CO for $350,000 and Twitter putting T.CO to good use, the registry is off to an incredible start.

Matt Mansell, CEO, Domainmonster commented, "The launch is where it counts. Six months of preparation and pre-orders have to be fired into the registry with millisecond precision if we are to deliver our promise". He continued, "Our Technical team absolutely delivered and we quite literally secured the very best domains before any other registrar got a look in".

Juan Diego Calle, CEO, .CO Internet SAS also commented, "Dominio Amigo clearly made the right choice selecting Domainmonster as their technical partner. The second our registry opened, we saw Domainmonster's reputation unfold before us. Totally flawless performance."

The .CO domain name is now open for general registration on a first come first served basis. Registrations can be made online and live at http://www.domainmonster.com.
