Google Apps makes .co an option (and promotes it)

.co front and center with the big three on Google Apps.

.co google appsGoogle Apps has added .co as a registration option when you open a new account.

Given that you can currently register 27 different top level domains with Google Apps, that’s not big news by itself.

But much like with many of the top domain name registrars, .co has managed to get Google to promote it.

When I tested just moments ago, Google places .co right up there with .com, .net, and .org. You have to click a link to see the other 23 registration options.

This is particularly surprising given the relatively high cost of .co. Google prices it at $25, which is second only to its .mx pricing.

Google Apps domain names are registered through partnerships with Go Daddy and eNom. It recently added a partnership with domaindiscount24.com, a member of the KeyDrive Group, which added a number of ccTLDs.
