If you're considering a domain name for your project, then there are three important steps to take:

1) Do not purchase an illegal .io domain
2) If you already have a .io domain, then please consider making a donation to the Chagossian People and their fight for justice and a return to their homeland.

- The money given is no string attached. Agency!
