Miami, FL (PRWEB) October 15, 2013
Today, .CO Internet, the company behind one of today’s fastest growing global domain extensions has announced the launch of European Internationalized Domain Names (IDNs) in the .CO namespace. Over the past three years, .CO has become the domain name of choice for individuals around the world – including an increasing number of non-English speakers. For this reason, .CO has begun offering .CO domain names in alternate languages including Chinese, Russian, German, French, Japanese, among others. Throughout 2013, .CO has implemented 15 different languages into its namespace with the goal of increasing local interest and use in a multilingual Internet.
“We’re excited to announce the launch of European IDNs,” said Crystal Peterson, Director of Global Sales & Channel Marketing, .CO Internet. “This launch is crucial as it further extends our international reach and makes .CO domain names more available to startups, brands, businesses and individuals in an increasingly growing market.”
The launch includes the Russian, German, French, Portuguese, Polish, Latvian, Lithuanian, and Hungarian languages (Spanish is already available for registrations). European IDN .CO domain names are available for general registration beginning today.
In the three years since its launch, the .CO domain has become one of the most successful top-level domain extensions in history, with more than 1.5 million Web addresses registered by people and companies in over 200 countries.
