    It might be good for .US in the long-run. But again, maybe not. Someone might launch .USA.

    That's a pretty good price for 3 not-so-good registries.

    I think this makes the $109 million they paid to acquire .co in March 2014 a steal. (Even though Overstock.com's re-branding to O.co was a miserable failure)

    I was just thinking the same thing about Neustar's acquisition of .co. But we don't have any idea how this money was split between their different profit (or loss) centers. So it's probably not doing them justice to speculate on this.
