Exploring The Opportunities With .IO
While .IO is actually a country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for the British Indian Ocean Territory, more and more technology companies have been picking it up for their own domain use. Many startups, developers, and internet enthusiasts have adopted it to mean "Input/Output" and have been able to snag some great one-word .IO domains.
Worried about how your SEO tactics will be affected when using a ccTLD? Let us ease your worries by sharing that Google now recognizes .IO as a generic country code top-level domain (gccTLD). This means you can now set up geotargeting with Google's Webmaster Tools, and not experience any negative impacts to your SEO efforts.
There are no restrictions to register an .IO domain. From open-source projects, mobile-apps, conferences and innovative blogs, the options available with the .IO extension are endless.
Even through our backordering services, we have noticed that our .IO domains do exceptionally well, with many going to auction.
