At two and a half years old, .CO is experiencing a growth spurt. Over 1.4 million companies sport the .co domain, and .CO came to SXSW this year with one hundred of them.

The company, which handles .co domains, celebrated its second birthday in July. Last November, they launched i.go.co with perks and benefits for businesses. For the Super Bowl this year, they partnered with GoDaddy for yet another funny commercial. (If you have a genius idea that’s bound to take off, you can now visualize your millionaire lifestyle – blinged-out cat included.)

CEO Juan Diego Calle talked with us last year at SXSW. This year, he took the stage again at our SXSW Startup Celebration sponsored by CEA and .CO. Hear him tell the story behind the Super Bowl commercial and .CO’s growing community. Here’s the video.
