From HEXONET Wiki
|.CO is the official country code Top-Level-Domain of Colombia. .CO offers individuals and organizations exciting new options in branding their online presence. Research has shown that .CO is immediately recognizable by registrants around the world to mean "company", "corporation" and/or other types of commercial ventures.|

Domains can be registered with the API AddDomain command.
command = AddDomain domain = (DOMAIN)
ownercontact0 = (CONTACT) admincontact0 = (CONTACT) techcontact0 = (CONTACT) billingcontact0 = (CONTACT) nameserver0 = (NAMESERVER) nameserver1 = (NAMESERVER)
auth = <TEXT> | <NULL> transferlock = 0 | 1 | <NULL> subuser = <TEXT> | <NULL>
There is a special procedure to handle a domain transfer. Please contact our Support-Team if you should need further information.
Please note that you cannot transfer a .CO domain name in these cases:
- within the first 60 days after a domain registration
- within the first 60 days after the transfer of a domain name
command = TransferDomain domain = (DOMAIN)
action = REQUEST | APPROVE | DENY | CANCEL | USERTRANSFER auth = <TEXT>
order = CREATE | REPLACE | UPDATE subuser = <TEXT> | <NULL> period = <PERIOD> transferlock = 0 | 1 | <NULL>
Domains can be deleted with the API DeleteDomain command.
There is no Deletion Restorable Period.
command = DeleteDomain domain = (DOMAIN)
command = RestoreDomain domain = (DOMAIN)
renewalmode = <NULL> | <TEXT> subuser = <TEXT>
Although a .CO domain stays in your account for 44 days after a failed renewal before it gets deleted, the registry deactivates the DNS resolving for the domain during this period.
Whois Reseller Branding
The .CO registry allows registrars to insert information about its resellers into the .CO WHOIS records, on a per domain basis. For this purpose, they have introduced two new fields within the whois output, the reseller name and homepage url, e.g.:
Domain Name: SOMEDOMAIN.CO Domain ID: D12345-CO Registrar-Reseller Name: Reseller LLC Registrar-Reseller URL: http://www.resellerhomepage.com ...
No special procedures.
