.radio is a generic top-level domain used in the Domain Name System of the internet. The TLD was officially delegated to the European Broadcasting Union on 7 October 2016.[1] Domain registration was made available on 28 August 2017.[2]

Usage[edit]

Usage of the .radio domain is reserved for those in the radio industry, including radio broadcast stations, amateur radio enthusiasts, and companies selling radio goods and services.[3] In its first year of availability, approximately 2,500 .radio domains were registered, each application having been checked to prevent cybersquatting.[4]
