comment Access to the .co Zone File?
I could do that, but I doubt the missing domains don't have DNS servers configured - taking the .pt ccTLD as an example, they only have about half of the 237,355 active domains (excluding the ones registered via ENH). My guess is, they are just brute-forcing the WHOIS system with common words and that doesn't guarantee that they are always up-to-date (plus, they don't seem to release updates for their packages). Either way, 1/3 of missing domains is really a lot for my purposes. I'll keep an eye on it though, and see how their count evolves.

The go.co blog says that they had over 1.5M domains as of September 26, while the viewdns.info package only counts 1,090,681. It's not the only one: .pt ccTLD has 584,757 registered domains but ViewDNS only counts 126,900. With such huge descrepancies, I don't find that data to be very reliable.

I contacted go.co partner support already, still no word from them. +1 for the Passive DNS zone files, they might prove useful if everything else fails (and they don't mind sharing them with me).

@Zoredache: gTLD zones are not secret, I suppose there's some kind of similar access program for this ccTLD since it's considered like a gTLD. As for the justification, I can provide it to the registrar / TLD authority if needed - but, if it eases your concerns, my purposes are no where near from being nefarious in nature.
