    The problem with that thinking, which is basically factual, is you are lumped together with the rest of the spanish speaking columbian domains. You need LLL or extremely premium domains. Nothing else sells. So you need to convince the worldwide buyers of this strategy. And how do you propose doing that? Posting it on NP, won't cut it.

    Though I haven’t owned any .co domains, my experience shows how .com is much easier to sell than any of the other extensions assuming you have real, meaningful, quality domains. I have had success with .org as well. And would pick .org/.net after .com due to level of familiarity and adoption. I think those factors play a role when you or potential end users pick the desired “real estate” for your site.

    Others may have different experience, but there’s no doubt in my mind about demand, type-in traffic, familiarity. etc. I would stick to very strong domains (preferably category killers) if investing outside the .com. As more sites are built in alternative extensions and adoption increases, .co might get wider demand. So it’s a long term play (over many years) w risk outside .com imo. But it might just pay off!

    Best of luck whichever way you go!

    Go with .com if it is a commercial site or else .co for company.

    Hello,

    I would agree with Riz. Unless it's one word English .co, I would not consider. But in general, no comparison at all. .Com all the way! If you can make money with .com already, why investing in something that you might not? Thank you for sharing.
