Neustar Acquires .CO Internet

.CO Internet closed its chapter as an independent company and became part of the publicly traded Neustar on Monday afternoon. The Sterling, Va.-based provider of real-time analytics and registry services was also already providing a critical piece of .CO Internet’s technology infrastructure. Neustar maintains the .biz and .us top-level domains and has been selected to provide services for up to 350 new domain extensions as a result of Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers’ ongoing global domain name expansion. Launched globally in 2010, .CO Internet was the exclusive operator of the worldwide registry for Internet addresses with the “.co” top-level domain, and had grown to managing 1.7 million names under management in more than 200 countries and territories. .CO sold for $109 million, according to the SEC filing.
