Gateway.io is a project of humbly.com. We also started park.io. Gateway.io allows you to buy domains on new TLDs which have been created with the handshake project. It is an improved version of DNS built for the new internet.
EPP is the standard protocol used for the provisioning and management of Internet domain names. It is used to manage most of the domains on the internet including all .com domains, .org domains, .io domains, etc... We are the first registrar to use EPP to manage and sell domains on handshake TLDs.
Currently you can register .txt and .xp, but we plan to add others in the near future.
The TLDs are secured on the handshake blockchain. We have partnered with namebase.io to provide custody and security of ownership keys. The EPP registry is run by a team with experience running the .io registry for nearly a decade.

Yes. We will never share your email address. We use Stripe for payments, so we do not store your credit card information - it actually never even touches our servers.
You can manage your domains by clicking on the Domains tab and then selecting the domain you would like to manage. From this page you can update the namesevers for the domain, or get the transfer auth code for the domain (if you want to transfer the domain to another person or registrar).
Yes, you can credit your account with Bitcoin - click on your Account details page after you log in for instructions.
Refunds on account credit will be subject to a 10% transaction fee. There may also be a holding period depending on the way you credited your account.
Yes, there is an option to turn Authy on for your account by editing your account details (click on your username in the menu bar after you log in).
If you enter the correct code from a computer, for convenience we store a cookie there so you don't have to enter the code each time you log in. If you'd rather enter the code each time, simply make sure to log out of gateway.io and the cookie will be deleted.
You can view the domain and click the "Transfer auth code" button to get the transfer auth code. Using this code you can transfer the domain to the registrar of your choice.
Yes - on the Domain details page, simply click on the button labeled "Push" and enter the email address of the person you want to push the domain to. They will have to create a gateway.io account if they do not already have one. There is no fee to push a domain.
