Why register a .io domain?
Not only popular with tech startups
Although the .io domain names have been around as early as 1997, it is still less occupied than other generic and extremely popular top-level domains (TLDs). TLDs with the .io code are an attractive option amongst the tech and startup scene and this is largely due to the fact that the letters stand for input/output within the industry.
Input/output represents the fundamental concept of computers: every input results in an output. Businesses, companies and individuals alike can benefit from the creative freedom of choosing their favored TLD name; a meaningful, unique and concise name may be what it takes to position your business ahead of the competition.
