Many use it with country specific domains like.co.uk or.co.jp(Japam) or any other. If you register a domain it will be someting like www.mydomain.co , are same as .com domains. These domains are available to any one and will be on first come first serve basis. You can register for your .co domains on GoDaddy.com , Network Solutions etc.
