Choose a .io domain name
The .io domain ending was initially created as the geographic domain ending for the British Indian Ocean territories, "io" signifying "Indian Ocean." This domain ending has evolved a lot with the emergence of startups, especially in the tech industry, where it soon became an industry favorite since the letters "i" and "o" are also an abbreviation for the term "input/output." By choosing this domain ending, you're choosing a domain name that shows you're a modern innovator.
The advantages you get with a .io domain name
The .io domain ending offers your business visibility in the world of start-ups, tech, and also video games, new technologies, the internet of things, etc. In sum, .io gives you a modern identity, with your finger on the pulse. Used internationally, .io offers you wide visibility around the world.
Cultivate your professional identity with a .io domain name
While it's popular in the world of start ups and technology in general, .io is still not widely used outside of those milieus, and finding the right .io domain name will be much easier than finding the right .com, which is far more saturated and can hence reduce your visibility.
