Do you run a website for a company or a corporation? Or maybe you are just interested in registering another domain with a popular extension? Whatever it is going to be, you will be pleased to know that Sitevalley.com is now offering .CO domain registration for only $30/year.
.CO is a new country-code top level domain (ccTLD) for Colombia, which has burst into market as it was promoted as a domain, perfectly fitting for companies, corporations and e-commerce projects, one may run. Such promotion is obvious, as “Co” is a usual shortening for such businesses. Now this TLD has all the chances of becoming widely accepted among internet audience, as it is not only meaningful, but might also be a good alternative to the famous .com. With over 25 year presence on the market, .com has left very low chance to register a catchy and memorable domain name.
Another concern is URL shortening. Since .CO Internet S.A.S. has officially launched it on the 20th of July, 2010, trademark holders have already reserved their brand domain names. Many of those did not actually register the same name with the new extension, but used abbreviations or shortenings. Thus Overstock.com got another name of o.co, while Twitter secured a t.co domain as a part of their service.
With Sitevalley.com besides paid registration you may even get a .CO domain for free, if you signup for our Small Business Hosting package with annual billing cycle. Don’t miss this opportunity!

Most of you are likely to have already heard something about Verisign planning to increase fees for .com and .net domain registration. New fees are to come into force on July, 1 2010 and are going to make 7% increase for .com domain registration and 10% increase for .net domains. The official announcement was published by Verisign a half a year ago – on the 17th of December, 2009 – but it seems to come into consumers’ concern only now.
Impact And Reaction
Though Verisign is not a domain registrar, they managed to prompt global price increase among their investors, sponsoring registrars and their resellers. However, if the prices announced by Verisign are expected to be $7.34 for .com domains and $4.65 for names with .net TLD, some domain name registrars have already sent .com/.net prices up to $15.
There is, however, some good news. Some companies started newsletter delivery with an offer to renew domain names registration for the old price and introduced discounts for new domain registrations. Such discounts are going to reduce the cost to even a smaller rate, than the current cost of the domain.\
Beside this, the price increase did not cause the chain reaction, so the price for other TLDs is not going to be changed. This means that anyone will be able to register domain names with different extensions for a lesser price.
What about SiteValley prices for domain registrations?
We at SiteValley.com have officially decided to keep our fees on the current level, so the .net/.com price is going to stay $12 as it was. Additionally, we are not going to cut any plans of free domains provision. If you are intended to get a stable and reliable hosting solution, you should definitely take a look at our Shared Hosting plans, any of which comes with a free domain, including .com and .net extensions.
Summertime is coming, finals are over and we have reasons to believe that you may get more free time, which you would like to dedicate to the development of your own web project. In this regard Sitevalley.com is introducing a new coupon code “schoolisout”, which will provide you with a 15% discount on all our shared hosting plans. This is a limited time offer, so make sure you come up with the decision and sing up till June, 30 2010.
