|Zixio.com and Zix.io -- Zixio or Zix io|
In a start-up company, you basically throw out all assumptions every three weeks.
-- William Lyon Phelps
The "io" ending tends to be popular with tech companies, perhaps because of its playful pronunciation. In fact, many companies are branding their companies with the .io (without having acquired the .com -- in our opinion, a fool's mission).
Normally, we sell just .com domains, but we are also offering .io as part of a two-fer, which offers you the opportunity to brand your company with a 3-letter domain + two-letter .io, which spells out your potential company name in its entirety. With these two domains working together, now it would make sense to develop Zix.io* as your main site, using Zixio.com as a redirect to Zix.io. You can now have both your cool factor and your practical business savvy, all wrapped up into one package.
"Zixio" has not been found on the USPTO.gov or Trademarkia.com data bases. However, the term "Zyxio" is trademarked for mobile phone software, so if you plan to use this name for that market, you might want to consult with a trademark lawyer before buying Zixio.com.
