Ask HN: Best place to buy .io domains?
2 points by BaconJuice on May 16, 2013 | hide | past | web | favorite | 4 comments
Hello HN Just wondering where you guys go to buy .io domains? nic.io seem to make you fill a very long form. Are there any alternatives? I usually use namecheap for my domains, however they don't support .io domains.

Thank you.

I just buy straight from nic.io. You only have to fill out the forms once and while I did do it a few years ago I don't remember it being all that bad.

Didn't google just buy up all the 3/4 letter common-word domains or something?

Google just started considering .io as a gccTLD ( which is basically just a ccTLD which they consider as a gTLD ( which means they don't consider it localized but rather a generic TLD ))

Oh thanks a bunch for the clarification
