Why is it that some domain names are held back by the .CO Registry or otherwise not available for registration?

Last Updated: Aug 15, 2018 08:32AM COT
The .CO Registry has reserved a number of domains that will not be available for registration or sold through registrars.  These include:
  • Restricted Domain List:  The Restricted Domain List generally consists of names stipulated by the Colombian Government as restricted and not available for registration.
  • Reserved Domain List:  The Reserved Domain List generally consists of names reserved by the .CO Registry for promotional and/or other strategic purposes, and/or for its or its affiliates’ internal use.
  • Super Premium Domain List:  The Super Premium Domain List generally consists of names reserved by the .CO Registry for future sale via public or private auction and/or negotiated transactions, including single and double character names, keywords and generic terms. 

The .CO registry has not published a publicly available list of all the Premium and Reserved domain names. The Restricted Domain List is accessible here (PDF).

To check the availability of a particular desired .CO domain name, please go to go.co/register. If the domain is part of the Super Premium Names list, it will be noted there; just fill out the form on the page to inquire about the name.
