Following our summer promo on the .IO extension, we are pleased to announce that .IO prices have been reduced for both creations and renewals!
Since the registry grants prices to registrars based on volume, the more .IO domains we manage, the less we need to charge you. So, beginning today at 10:50 Paris time, both creations and renewals of .IO domains will be at €32 excl. VAT under A rates (a reduction of 4 Euros).
Finally, I would like to remind you that .IO transfers are free (at the registry and at Gandi), so feel free to spread the word!
If you wonder what region of the world could possible correspond to .IO you will not be dissapointed by the voyage :)
This extension is very popular among computer enthousiasts, often referred to as Geeks or sometimes Nerds... And why this? Quite simply because this acronym, IO, is used in the computer world as i/o meaning Input/Output for data within a computer system.
Otherwise, .IO is the official extension of the British Indian Ocean Territory, though that is apparantly a less popular usage of the extension...
It only costs $50 to register a .IO domain for one year under A rates, if you don't pay VAT. You can see all .IO prices here.
Note for transfers: incoming transfers are free, they do not change the domain's expiration date. To perfom a transfer, you must either ask the registry or your current provider to make Gandi (NIC-1165) the billing contact and then launch the procedure via our interface or ask your provider for the password of your administrative contact at the registry and then add it as the transfer authorization code during the procedure.
