Anyone think the .co extension will ever replace the .com?

    It's a very interesting question.

    In the short term I don't think it's going to happen.

    A lot of people have invested a lot of money in .COM so it's definitely going to be the dominant force in Top Level Domains for a little while longer.

    I think with the New gTLDs being delegated later this year and onwards, the power of .COM will start to diminish.

    Hopefully then there will be a wide range of TLDs which will be able to share the burden that .COM has had for so long. The diversity in the Domain Name space has been lacking for quite some time now.

    When you can register something much more relevant to your site, like .blog, .business, .shop etc. I think you'll find that there will be a variety of top domain names, not a single dominant TLD, which .COM has been for a very long time.

    Just my 2c!

    I find the new gtlds very interesting, however, I do not think they will make the .com less powerful, but will make .com websites far more respectable overall. People will say, that was a blog that was here when it began.

    I really think .Co will take off at some point. A lot of ppl have taken up lots of available .co now and it is expanding. I must admit, .com is the most powerful extension. If you were to get a domain, you would tend to look to see if .com is available first then maybe .net or .org.. but I think .co is reasonable.

    .com as always been on top, and it would be top in future too, there are many new tlds are coming but they can't compete with .com.

    I believe never while there still lot of second level domain name out there like .net , .biz, .org .info .
    .CO won't replace .com because .co for Google will be assume as Columbia domain and Columbia website. Its not good to use the .co domain to replace as .com .

    i do think so, the simple reason is the nice domains with extension .com too expensive in next time.

    .CO won't replace .com. But I think .CO has alot of value for people looking for an industry type extension.

    .co would have been more valuable if it was not for Columbia.
    But it won't happen. So .com is the most popular one, .co is nothing compared to .com

    never, I dont think any ccTLD is going to take over .com .
    .com is far ahead then all other TLD;s.

    A lot of people associate oddball extensions with spam/porn/malware/gambling type sites.

    Anything other than a .com is the digital equivalent to an address in the bad part of town.
