Amazon Bought 4 New .CO URLs

TechCrunch reported yesterday that Amazon got the rights to 4 new URLs on the .CO domain from the licensing authority in Columbia. The 4 URLS are:

  • A.Co
  • Z.Co
  • K.Co

I bet you can guess that the is for Amazon, refers to the Kindle, and will be used with Amazon’s new cloud storage service. But the URL might be a stumper if not for Amazon’s logo. Look at the logo again. Do you see how the smile/arrow starts at the 'A' and ends on the 'z'? That was a deliberate design decision because Amazon wanted the logo to imply "from A to Z". i bet that’s why they bought the URL.
