Would a very commonly used and searched 2 word tech related term be valuable with a .io extension?

    I was looking to purchase a tech related .io domain for the purposes of flipping it and stumbled across a 2 word tech term that gets searched for over 500,000 times per month (according to google keyword tool) that is still available. The domain also doesn't infringe on any copyright or trademarks. Does anyone think that this would be a worthwhile investment because .io are quite expensive.

    I would steer clear of .IO if you are new to domaining, they are not easy to sell.

    Just my opinion..

    One word .io are easy to sell..but if its a two word .io then it should be strong enough to appeal buyers..Good Luck..

    like others above have said, one word dictionary domains are where its at for .io domains. two word .io's may be tough to sell at this point unless its something great and tech related

    2 words only if it is actually 1 composite word or they form a very common term like smartphone

    Long domains seem to sell at desperately low prices, even for very common and desirable words (see below)

    I also checked a database of companies and almost all those that have an .io have short names (5-10 characters mostly)

    May be it can be a long term investment

    domain
    Google monthly search
    CPC (cost per click)
