.co domains will be available to the general public in June. But! the registrar has created a program called .CO Founder to give legit startups early access to .co domains. That’s how we got vh.co.
I’m pretty psyched about .co. Other domains like .us, .es, and .ly are cool but I don’t know if they make sense to normal people. I think .co has a good chance of going mainstream and we’re putting our money where our mouth is.
venturehacks.com is staying right where it is — we’re just using vh.co for short URLs on Twitter. You can also enter vh.co in your mobile Web browser and we’ll take you to the mobile version of venturehacks.com.
Startups who want to put .co domains to good use should apply to the .CO Founder program. Tell ’em we sent you. Everyone else can pre-register for general availability at their favorite registrar.
