For the past few years, .IO domain names have become very popular. A quick glance at NameBio shows the substantial value that exists for some .IO domain names. In addition, a look at TechCrunch, CrunchBase, The Verge, or pretty much any other tech publication shows the extensive usage of .IO domain names at various startups across many fields. I readily admit I have never owned a .IO domain name (and very few ccTLDs in general), but there is a big market for them and Park.io is one of the companies that leads the pack when it comes to the sale of .IO domain names.
Adam Yamada-Hanff emailed me about a podcast readers might find interesting. Failory interviewed Mike Carson, Founder of Park.io, and the interview was released this week as a part of the Failory Podcast series.
