.io domain name

Reserve your .io domain name

The .io extension was created in 1997 and is the extension for the British Indian Ocean territory. Today its use refers more to I/O which stands for Input/Output, a nod to the technology sector. This ccTLD is no longer geographically restricted; it can be purchased by any kind of company or individual. It is also considered by search engines and especially by Google as a gTLD (like .com, .net, .org, etc.). It is used extensively by tech startups, in the field of online gaming, and for many open-source projects. An .io domain is suitable for all types of web development projects. Registering an .io domain name will set you apart and make you more visible to a dynamic tech audience.
