All proceeds from the first .CO domain auction goes to a charity of the buyers’ choice.
The seller, .CO Internet, which operates the .CO top-level domain, will soon be announcing the winners of the auction, but we’ve learned the names of the buyers ahead of time.
The E.CO auction was held live at this week’s Internet Week conference in New York City. The last hour of bidding, which concluded at 4:10 pm Eastern Time, was also simulcast at both the Internet Retailer (Chicago) and TRAFFIC (Vancouver) shows.
We’re told over 10 countries were represented, and over twenty people bid on the domain name – a record number for any single domain auction. Visit e.co to learn more about the auction.
