    From Slither.io to Clothes.io to CodePen.io to a growing list of personal and company brands, .io domains have become the darling domain of tech startups and domain investors.

    In a recent podcast episode, Ryan Evans — a long-time serial entrepreneur — shares his experience investing in keyword and exact match domains, and how both paved the way to co-founding a web analytics startup: Tend.io.

    In addition, Ryan discusses the considerations and deciding factors that led him to exchange a .com for a .io digital presence. Listen and learn how he was able to procure the "steal of a deal" .io domain, and how it's impacted business.

    io are very good.
    but they'll never be a match for .com
    but.. then again... that goes for all extensions.

    I don't like TEND as domain word at all.

    it doesn't look great.. and it doesn't flow when you say it...

    but that's just me

    cheers

    Some time, to prove a name is a great name, u need build it into a great site...(a joke...) if we as domainer think in this way, we are not domainer, we become enduser...even lots people are mixed.

    if that people state slither.io is much better than slither.com, may be just because somehow the site itself is better...

    there are exceptions...while the keywords is perfectly match with the extention, it may have better position, at least become a true competition...

    I recently bought an .io name, to be honesty..."if" I have both .com and .io version to choose freely, I will choose .io as the main site while use .com as a redirection, reason?the .io version make more sense and feel for that area..

    .com is always the 5th avenue of domain name, regardless of contents.
