Re: [ga] New Domain Name Solution
This IO thing - British Indian Ocean Territory Registrar - is more
catalogue then it is registrar.
And they don't even use dns - they cname all *.io records to an httpd
which then redirects the request. Very droll, but who knows - it may end
up being a great search site for domains.
