.IN Domains Available

The recently launched .IN country code internet domain name Registry services set up by the National Internet Exchange of India (NIXI) has opened the real-time registration for the general public from today. The official Internet domain .IN for the country will now be available to anyone who wants it. Today, within an hour of opening, nearly 24,000 domain names were registered successfully. Tens of thousands of registrations are expected to be registered within the first few days. .IN domain name registry received over 4000 applications from registered Indian trademark holders during the Sunrise period from January 1st-21st 2005, including applications from among the top 100 brands in India and worldwide.

.IN Registry has been created by NIXI promoted by the Department of Information Technology (DIT), as a ‘not-for-profit’ company in association with the Internet Service Providers Association of India. The registry has formulated new policies for the registration and administration of .IN domain names. These include the .IN Sunrise Policy’ and the .IN Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (INDRP)’. With a view to make .IN domain name registrations easier, faster and more transparent so as to make the internet available to more Indian population and thus reflect India’s global dominance in the field of Information Technology the above policies were framed.
