What is .IO?

The .io domain is the extension assigned to the British Indian Ocean Territory. While the domain is technically a ccTLD (country code top-level domain), Google regards the extension more as a gTLD (generic top-level domain) due to its popularity among startup companies. In truth, there are more domains registered under the .io extension which have to do with technology, or otherwise, than there are domains that have to do with the British Indian Ocean Territory. The first non Government domain registered under the .io extension was Levi Strauss & Co’s

Why Register a .IO Domain?

You should register a .io domain because the extension is still relatively new and you have a better chance of getting a single word .io domain over a multi-word .com domain, for example. If your new website is for a product or company that is technology-oriented, the .io domain fits right in line with tech branding. The .io domain is also quite memorable due to its short nature.

Is the .IO domain right for me?

The .io domain is perfect if you are creating a website that has to do with computers, technology, or really, anything you want. While I/O may be associated with computers, perhaps your initials are the same as IO and you want to run a personal blog on the extension. Consider the short nature of the domain as well. If your existing website needs an additional domain for CDN or caching, consider the .io extension due to it’s brevity.

How to Choose a .IO Domain Name? (5 Tips to Do It Right)


Stay simple

Don’t get complicated. An easy-to-remember domain is always best.


Keep it on-brand

Stay true to your brand. Be distinct but choose a domain your audience will recognize.


Add now

Don’t wait until it’s too late. That perfect domain could be gone by tomorrow if you don’t grab it now.


Drop the hyphens

Just because the internet is high-tech doesn’t mean your domain name should be.


Consider your options

Grab similar domain names to protect your brand: .net, .org, .co, or even .photo.
