eNom and NameJet Partner to Offer .CO General Availability Pre-Order Service

June 28, 2010 by  

Web Hosting NewsSANTA MONICA, CA – eNom, Inc., the world’s largest ICANN accredited domain name wholesaler and accredited .CO registrar, today announced a partnership with NameJet, to offer a general availability (GA) pre-order bidding service for new .CO domain names, designed to improve its customers’ chances of obtaining desirable .CO domain names during the GA period, for less than Landrush registration prices.

During the pre-order period, which is now open and will remain open until July 19 at 11:00 pm EDT, potential registrants may place a bid for any non-registered .CO domain name for $39.00, which includes the application fee and one-year registration fee.  If more than one potential registrant bids for the same .CO domain name the  bids will be entered into a transparent auction format allowing potential registrants to see other bids and to raise their own accordingly.

Once .CO GA opens, NameJet’s proprietary auction platform swings into action, utilizing a multitude of resources to attempt to register the desired domains more efficiently than an individual and thus optimizing each participant’s chances of securing the domain name they want.   Auction participants who do not win their choice of domain name will not be charged their initial bid amount.

“eNom is pleased to collaborate with NameJet to give customers the best opportunity to secure the .CO domain names they want at below land rush prices. This complements our ongoing commitment to provide our customers with the most diverse selection of domain names at affordable pricing,” said Chris Sheridan, vice president of sales for Demand Media, the parent company of eNom, Inc.

“We are excited to be able to provide this .CO landrush alternative for our customers. Our main objective is to provide services that allow our customers the opportunity to acquire the domain names they want and eNom has a proven track record in this area,” said Steve Brown, General Manager of NameJet.
