Indian Domain Name Registrations

Once available to only a small group, .IN domain names will soon be available to everyone who wants one. Companies, individuals, and organizations in India and abroad will be eligible. Show your pride by using a .IN domain name — the symbol of India’s future!

With India emerging as a global destination for IT outsourcing/off-shoring, Indian organisations should change the domain names of their websites and e-mail IDs to sport .in at the end, just like other countries.

Beginning in early 2005, anyone who wants to register a .IN domain name will be allowed to. Registration will also be open to parties inside and outside of India, without restriction. For the first time, domains will be available at the second level — easy-to-use and easy-to-remember domains such as “mydomain.in”. Registration at the third level will also be open. There will be a variety of popular extensions available, such as mydomain.co.in, myorganization.org.in, and more!

The new era for .IN began with a Sunrise Period. Owners of registered Indian trademarks or service marks who wish to protect their marks were given the opportunity to apply for .IN domain names before the general public. Sunrise applications taken from January 1 to January 21, 2005.Open registration for the general public was launched on February 16, 2005.
