Asteroid nearly destroys the entire .Co inventory

Despite an asteroid hitting Colombia, the .Co domains are safe and sound.

While we’re eagerly expecting the total number of dot .co registrations to reach half a million sometime this weekend, a near Extinction Level Event (E.L.E) occurred on September 5th in Colombia.

Around 3:10 pm on Sunday afternoon residents of Colombia were awestruck when the clear sky was streaked by a massive fireball that exploded upon impact with the ground, leaving behind a 100 meter (300 ft) wide crater.

Immediately, we contacted Lori Anne Wardidirector of marketing for the .Co Registry – who confirmed that there were no casualties at the Dot .Co headquarters.

“All of our .Co domain inventory, servers and associated hardware is safe and very much operational”, said Lori Anne.

“The solid infrastructure that we have put in place, including 6ft thick concrete walls and roof make our Dot .Co Registry practically indestructible. The asteroid fell not too far from here and it could have put our infrastructure to a test but it was a near miss”, she added.

These days, natural elements endanger domains, as Verisign found out earlier this year when some really old domains went bad. The new TLDs, however, such as .Co contain microcode that renders them resilient to a lot of wear and tear.
