Excellent investment: Premium Domain For Sale: RABBIT.IO
The reason .io domains are so valuable is because companies that use .io domains are known as being great at what they do. This blog post explains it well:
"These new .io sites are almost artisanal in nature - small, well crafted and functional. It's like a TLD for techies with taste."
They are also short, sound good, and .io domains perform well in Google's search results. The reason for this is because they've been added to the geotargetable domains list.
Microsoft bought Doc.io for $24,600, Elasticsearch just bought es.io for $30,000, cloud.io sold for $45,000 on Flippa, music.io sold on Flippa a couple weeks ago for $20,000, traffic.io sold on Flippa last week for $14,000, and fd.io, db.io, sports.io, mega.io, crave.io, groups.io, etc.. recently sold for $10k+.
Domain Name Holdings reported that they sold a .io domain in Q2 of 2015 for 6-figures.
A lot of the tech startups that use .io domains are now very successful businesses, further reinforcing the idea that companies that use .io domains are "in the know" and part of the sophisticated tech crowd.
Check out just some of these examples:
But it's not only startups that use .io domains. Google, Microsoft and Yahoo are also buying .io domains.
Blog posts have been written on the new-found popularity of .io domains. Such as this post: The Rise of .io Domain Names for APIs.
Wikipedia also notes: ".io domains are popular with new startup companies."
The term "rabbit" has nearly 260 MILLION search results in Google, and "RABBIT.IO" is of course extremely brandable. RABBIT is a cool, positive word, and it is general enough to be used for anything. Rabbits are *fast*, so it would be a great name for a product that has to do with quick delivery, or execution.
RABBIT.IO is simple and elegant and easy to remember. It's an awesome name which will make your project or company stand out and be remembered.
