Welcome to NIC.IO

We provide the Registry services to the ".io" Top Level Domain Name and provide this exclusive domain to registrars and their customers worldwide.

Each year, businesses and other entities spend millions on developing and promoting their brands and identity, both in a traditional "bricks and mortar" fashion and on the Internet. While establishing a brand and identity is vital for commercial success, equally important is the experience of potential customers when interacting with the brand and identity. This is particularly important in the "virtual" world where there must not only be trust and confidence in a brand, but in the legitimacy of the party posting the brand on its website.

The .io name space is highly sought after and now this very special Top Level Domain can belong to you.

.IO operates a DNSSEC signed zone, operated on a secure, globally diverse anycast system with over 40 locations. Your domain will work securely, as expected, and fast! All names in the .io zone are DNSSEC signed (Our Key) and we give customers and their Registrars the ability to submit their DS Records in Real Time to ensure YOUR security and that of your Customers. Use our FREE signing tool.
