Go Daddy Posts .CO Super Bowl Commercial

Go Daddy Posts .CO Super Bowl Ad

8

Although GoDaddy generally waits until Super Bowl Sunday to post their commercials, the company has decided to post at least one earlier than normal this year. On the Go Daddy home page, there’s a small banner below the fold that says “Be the first to see our new Ad! Click to see why Dot CO domains from Go Daddy have never looked so sexy!

Although embedding is disabled for the video, you can visit Godaddy’s website to see the commercial. As I mentioned, the .CO GoDaddy Girl is Colombian model Natalia Velez, who looks beautiful in the commercial.

As you will see, there’s also a call to action encouraging viewers to see “a lot more now” on the GoDaddy.CO website, although I couldn’t find a link to the video on the .CO website.

Overall, I think it’s a pretty good commercial from Go Daddy and the .CO Registry, since their objective is to send people to the website to learn more about why they think businesses should consider buying and using a .CO domain name.

    Exposure on a grand scale for alternative extensions will help create a more receptive market for new gtlds. Thanks .co and Godaddy.

    When you wrote an article regarding .co in the past later were many comments. Now its very visible that people lost interest of .co looking just at comments or rather lack of them.

    The problem with them (.co) is you have to spend the next 5 minutes explaining that it is dot co and NOT dot com. Gets tiring educating everyone you give your url to. Also, think about how ugly your radio ad will need to be. Finally, you lose 25% of your visitors to the .com owner. Much easier to simply stick with .com to begin with.

    I hope they start allowing people to sell their X.CO shortcuts like they were domain names.
