Why co.cc died

Just less than a year ago, co.cc was a thriving website, the place for anyone that wanted a domain name to get it free! Yes, it was a subdomian of a guy that owned the entire co.cc network, but it was almost like a regular domain , almost like co.uk :)

Well anyways , the entire thing went from a "generous project" to getting banned from google within one year. The reason behind that was , the casual spammer. People would take like 10 names and use them to spam and generate back-links to their own websites.

Because google is the largest provider of searches , the devs of co.cc decided to call it quits, and in late 2012, the website was demobilized. Kind of reminds us of ex4.me and Adbrite/Blacklabelads ...

It's ironic, the order of the iron phoenix started out as a co.cc website you know :) , we naturally transferred over , but we must say co.cc lives with us in our hearts :)

And for any future "subdomian owners" , never give away in bulk to spammers, or history will repeat itself.
