The Dark Side of .IO
.io is the TLD for the Chagos Archipelago.
50 years ago, the UK Government deported all Chagossians.
They lost all rights to their homeland, now including the valuable .io TLD.
To this day, the Chagossians continue their fight for the right to return.
As .io startups, we like the .io TLD for its high availability, its possibilities for domain hacks, and for being cheap.
But not at all costs.
Running a .IO Startup?
Take up social responsiblity, and back the Chagossian fight for justice!
