I received a notice about Grandfathering. What does that mean?
Grandfathering is a term used by the .CO registry. It designates the type of domains that are given first rights to the 2nd level equivalent of previously registered 3rd level domains, if that domain was registered prior to July 30th, 2008. For example, if you own "mydomain.COm.CO" , then the registry may have given you "mydomain.CO". You would have been sent an email to your Admin Contact email address with your transfer authorization code.

What do I do with my Grandfathering domain?
Use your authorization code to transfer your domain to your account. The authorization code was sent to you on or about March 01, 2010 to your Admin Contact email address from the .CO registry.
What about 2nd level .CO domain?
.CO domains (e.g. "mydomain.CO") instead of "mydomain.COm.CO" will be available for general registration by anyone in the world later this year. A .CO domain means more than connecting your site with Colombia! Get ready for the .CO era -- a wide-open name space with literally millions of exciting, memorable options to choose from for an online presence!
