    the domain was fno.co
    The domain had about less than a month for the renewal. I thought I was going to let it drop, but luckily I received an offer. I sold it without a second thought.

    sold price: $1500
    acquired: $76.00 (on 01/2017 - godaddy auction)

    sold it with Godaddy.

    Congrats! :)

    I still think .co is a really good alternate option to .com when you look at value.

    Before I get the trash talk .. lol .. yes obviously the first choice is always .com .. but what I mean is in terms of value .. retail price for FNO.com probably would have been 100x at $150k (or more) .. so at 1500, the .co version is a good buy .. and a good sale! :)

    I've seen 3L .co's more and more with end users .. not super high percentage .. but enough for me to say the TLD won't implode like a lot of others.

    The higher reg price of .co also keeps it much cleaner in terms in terms of spam. physhing and other shenanigans like with .xyz and all other ultra-discounted gTLD's.

    Congratulations once again! :)

    The reason you were gonna drop it was probably renewal, the dot co has the potential of being one of the top 3 extensions if the renewal would come down to 15 or less

    Congrats,

    Every .co sales inspired me to hold my only one .co domain for long.

    R|E|N|T|A|L|H|O|U|S|E|.co

    (All major TLD has been taken)

    Don't know it will sold or not but it's still has lot of time to be expired.

    Once again congratulation for sale, wish you could have more sale this year.

    No way. The shorter - the better. Two-word co has no market - at least for me. Three years I've been holding
    vacationdeal.co,
    airflights.co

    No single offer. I've even developed airflights.co, so as to add some value. No luck.

    Whereas within same period I've sold over 10 one-word (dictionary) co and 14
    3L.co - acronyms.

    I only registered this domain because of it's exact match keyword search, 36000 per month searches & $1.50 CPC.

    I have not yet approached anyone for sale

    Congrats!!

    Nice sale!!

    Dot co's can be tricky to pick, and the wait to sell can be longer for dot coms, or never, if you pick badly.

    Single word, shorter dot co names are more likely to sell.

    Gives me hope for my domain name oai.co
    Opensource Artificial Intelligence and nearly 10-15 exact matching endusers for this short domain.

    Mortgagee.co is powerful domain name - one-word, dictionary, banking/finance sector. Hold on to it and have patience. With the right exposure, you will sell it.
