De uns tempos para cá, tenho notado que blogs e sites de empresas de tecnologia, principalmente da California, estão utilizando dominios ".io". Qual seria a razão desse modismo? Talvez a explicação seja:
Per registry regulations, no .io domain may be used, directly or indirectly, for any purpose that is sexual or pornographic or that is against the statutory laws of any nation.
No .IO domain may be used, directly or indirectly, for any purpose that is sexual or pornographic or that is against the statutory laws of any Nation. In the event of NIC.IO being advised by any party that a specific site breaches this condition then NIC.IO reserves the right to immediately deactivate the offending registration. The applicant may seek the reinstatement of any suspended domain name by seeking a determination by an Arbitrator appointed by the World Intellectual Property organisation.
7. UNSOLICITED COMMERCIAL E-MAIL (SPAM) MAIL POLICY
In the event that any .IO domain is used either directly or indirectly for the purpose of directing unsolicited electronic mail ("spam mail") either as the originator of the spam mail or as the address to which readers of spam mail are referred, then NIC.IO reserves the right to send a cease and desist letter to the registered Administrative Contact of the specified .IO domain name. Should the Administrative Contact of the .IO domain name fail to adhere to the conditions contained in the warning letter, then NIC.IO reserves the right to suspend the operation of the offending .IO domain name until the necessary assurances are obtained from the Administrative Contact.
