What is up with the .cc?

So we are renaming our church officially in a couple of weeks… So we began looking at domain names…

Matt came up with Richmond.cc, which is already taken but it made think where did the .cc begin?

So here’s what I found out…

The .cc is registered to the Cocos (Keeling) Islands… So you may ask where is that Anthony?
The Cocos (Keeling) Islands are located in the middle of the Indian Ocean some 2750km north-west of Perth, and 900km west south-west of Christmas Island, its closest neighbour. Cocos lies approximately 12° south and 96.5° east, locating the islands in the humid tropical zone. (http://www.cocos-tourism.cc/about.htm)

So what does .CC stand for?
Well could be a lot of different things, This company http://www.enic.cc/ thinks they figured out some names. Check it out.

How much does .CC cost?
Well on GoDaddy.com is costs $19.99/yr. If you buy one best of luck, alot of them are taken!

What’s a couple of organizations that have .CC domains?
www.Lakewood.cc and www.NewSpring.cc are two I know of.

Well there’s some interesting information on .CC. Maybe someday I will have a .CC…
