On Mega.co, Kim Dotcom's associate Mathias Ortmann of Mega.co.nz said to us:
I think that mega.co is not such a bad idea at all, maybe not as the primary domain, but surely to catch type-in traffic that omits .nz
After 48 hours of being redirected to join.ome.ga Mega.co has attracted close to 30,000 visitors. (update: 48,728 page views as to feb. 6th, see attached stats)
Mega.co is simply the best alternative to the dot-com.
It is administered by .CO Internet S.A.S., a strategic venture formed between Arcelandia S.A. and Neustar, Inc.
Some examples of .co use include Twitter (t.co), AngelList (Angel.co), ENTER (Enter.co), 500 Startups (500.co), Aspen Group (Aspen.co), Google Inc. (g.co) and Amazon (cloud.co). Some companies such as American Express (amex.co) and Starbucks (sbux.co) are using .co for URL shortening in social media.
« Today there are over 1.4 million .CO domain names registered by people in over 200 countries worldwide. The .CO namespace has grown more than 24% from 2011 to 2012 – and renewals remain consistently strong. Our .COmmunity is only getting bigger and better, with tons of startups, small businesses, innovators and entrepreneurs choosing to build the future on .CO every day. » — CEO of .CO
