What’s in the domain name? Colorado may spend $2 million to switch to .gov.

The Colorado Sun: Gov. Jared Polis’ administration wants to spend $2 million to change Colorado’s state government website and email domain extensions to .gov from state.co.us in a proposal billed as a way to mitigate cybersecurity risks and make it easier for state officials to participate in federal briefings. 

Until recently, all email addresses for state employees used the state.co.us domain name extension.

The transition to .gov has already begun, but the Governor’s Office of Information Technology is asking state lawmakers to let it spend $2 million to complete the switch.
