    Thanks for another great article and follow-up to your previous .io article! I've got the following and they're going to be held long as my experience with .io (as with other extensions) has been that its worth waiting for the buyer.

    Very thorough and vey insightful analysis of .io domain names.

    Also enjoyed the quality and variety of .io names in the portfolios of NP members.

    Another well reasoned and well documented article Bob, thanks!

    Amazing Insight about .IO Domains! Thanks for sharing it!
    I sold few domains and right now hold only one single word domain just like Worlds.io ! Hope I would find potential end user for my domain as well! cover[1].png

    Thank you, Bob. Great Work.

    I have 2 .io domains.

    1- Digital.IO - 10 years old premium generic domain

    2- som.io - 7 years old LLL.io domain.

    Like Freddie Compier says:

    ".io domains have recently become so popular with businesses, individuals, and shrewd domain investors…They’re short, sound good, and .io domains perform well in Google’s search results…"

    Thank you @Bob Hawkes , your articles are always such a good read. I love data crunching and really feel lucky you share all your work with us!!

    I started only recently to enter the .io field, so your article is right in time.

    I realized that some good names I couldn't dream of in .com were affordable in .io so I got:

    CoinMiners
    Datafile
    Fiver
    Sharding (Big Data Method, also used in crypto)
    Napalm

    Have some listed on Brandbucket

    Xanadu
    AppCloud
    BusinessCloud
    Hayloft
    Newsday

    Some French

    litchi (French for lychee)
    courtier (French for broker)

    and 4L/Brandables which potential I'm less sure of but I can afford to keep a few years to see if this field takes off.

    Just a clarification, while I think it would be interesting for those with .io portfolios to list a few of their better names, if they so wish, possibly with comments, please don't use the comments thread as a way to try to sell your domain names. Sorry if this was not clear earlier.

    Thanks to those who have shared small selections of their best names, and accounts of sales success (or not) in the extension.

    Bob

    have around 100 solid ones.. u could reg those mainly off expired 2-3 years back.. since then forget it... everything goes to catchers for bidding..... and sells for insane prices considering some of the crap there... i hope the buyers aren't resellers in most cases cause those prices leave zero room for profit.

    for io its basically 1worders.. the more common the better... sometimes u get lucky with brandable.... even less 2word.... really.. 1word only.

    Thanks for your kind comment :xf.smile:.

    I liked to research and analyze the .io situation for these articles, but I have not invested in them personally, yet, so really can't offer a very meaningful assessment, and probably should not in any case.

    I would say, though, that I really like pram from your list, it has both a general meaning (at least in parts of the world) but also a technical meaning, is near the optimum length, easily pronounced, no spelling error possible, etc. I see that Dofo show it is registered in 52 TLDs. According to Open Corporates the word pram is part of the name of 320 active companies, which surprised me, although it looks like some have it as a person's name, perhaps? I did not look into acronym ones beyond the obvious one (just had to reset my PRAM yesterday when encountered computer problems!) Anyway, I see lots of potential in that name, but remember I am no expert and just about to acquire my first .io name, I think.

    The very best wishes for all of your names.

    Bob

    And speaking of words ending in "ly", my wife used in scrabble tonight the word "gnarl" and later when it was my turn I added a "y" making it "gnarly". While I knew the word, I just hadn't seen it spelled out in a while so the first thing i checked was for the domain gnarli.com and discovered it's owned by Chinese? So having seen Bobs thread, and running into a local business guy a few days ago whose business domain is SparkFactory.io I decided to check to see if Gnarl.io was for sale and it was. Gnarlio.com is also available. "gnarl" and "gnarly" are pretty unique words in my opinion making Gnarlio:xf.wink: pretty unique as well.

    Another observation, my wife tried to make a play with the word "Deli", however she spelled it Delli thinking I wouldn't challenge it, but I did. Scrabble is a game every domainer should play to sharpen their skills. I haven't done this before, but I think you can play scrabble online....anyone do this?

    btw, thanks Bob Hawkes. I had no idea how big a deal the .io extension is.
