This is quite incredible! .co crossed 400k registrations on Aug, 6 - so with these rates by now they are probably at over half a million registrations. A very quick rate of growth for any new tld. Will it suffer the same fate as .mobi, .asia, .us and others? They all received quite a few registrations at first and some market activity, but after a year or two many started to drop their domains admitting that they made a mistake by registering a bunch of crappy domains in an obscure extention.
