Jun 02, 2010, 08:30 ET from Domainmonster.com

NEW YORK, June 2, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Just 7 days now remain for brand holders to make their application and secure their corresponding .CO domain name on the Internet. Launching to the public at General Availability stage on 20th July 2010, the new .CO domain name will be closing its doors to trademark applications at 18:00 (UTC) on Thursday 10th June 2010.

Every single leading brand in Interbrand's Top 10 Worldwide Brands by revenue has made their applications already, including household names such as Microsoft, Google and Coca Cola.

"We have no doubt at all, this is going to be the biggest domain launch seen in recent years," commented Matt Mansell, CEO, Domainmonster.com. "This really is the start of a new era. For the first time, consumers can append their domain name with the true worldwide abbreviation for Company, making their full web address shorter at the same time," continued Mansell.

Domainmonster.com is accepting Sunrise orders entirely live at Domainmonster.com. Brand orders simply need to make sure they held their valid trademark prior to 30th July 2008, ensure they meet a few basic terms, and then supply details of their trademark online when checking out.

Both other public stages (Landrush and General Availability) for .CO domains can also be pre-ordered at Domainmonster.com.
