    Get them while they are hot!!


    So I get an email informing me that the extension .co is now available for domain names. ( I guess I am supposed to want to protect my .com extension from predators, phishers, etc. etc. )

    The .co extensions of course will cost three times more than your already purchased
    .com extensions per year.

    Step right up!!!

    I supposed if I depended on my website for income I might want to purchase a .co extension to keep the money coming in; but since I do not I really do not care!!!

    I got a little mirth, that's all!!!

    I must have missed the big announcement, so please enlighten me. What is .co? Is it going to be in addition to .com sites or instead of?

    In addition.

    You could register something like amazon.co (although I bet they already have) and set up a fake site on it and catch a fair few mugs.

    Internationalised domain names also provide the same opportunity.
    What do we want?
    Time machines!

    When do we want 'em?
    Doesn't really matter does it!?
