A monster domain - incredibly rare opportunity in hot .io TLD

Seller's Notes

MKT = market = marketing

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 for $24,600Elasticsearch just bought for $30, sold for $45,000 on Flippa, sold for $60,000, sold on Flippa for $20,000, on Flippa for $14,000, and,,,,,,, and many more 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.

Microsoft snapped up for $24,600Google owns Coupons.ioYahoo owns, and Disney owns,  amongst others.

Even the US government is happy to use .io domains.   And US Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton uses!

.io domains are increasingly popular - many startups prefer .io over .com  And they are more popular than .org as reported by Google Trends.

The term "mkt" has nearly 49 MILLION search results in Google, and "MKT.IO" is of course extremely brandable.  MKT is THE best keyword domain you can get for a marketing service or product, it's very short and this space has been really hot recently.

Marketing is very important to startups and tech, which is exactly the companies who love .io domains.  As a domain investment, I can easily see this selling for 5-6 figures or more.

MKT.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.
