.IN is India's top-level domain on the Internet. Like .COM, .IN can be used for e-mail, Web sites, and other applications. But unlike other domains, .IN is a unique symbol of India and its role in the world.
The procedures for registering .IN names will be simplified. This will allow anyone to register and use .IN domain names. We are upgrading the technology used to run the .IN registry, and .IN names will be available for signup through a variety of Internet service providers and other registrars. Soon .IN domains will be easy to buy, easy to use, and faster and more reliable than ever!
INRegistry is the official .IN registry. It was appointed by the government of India, and is operated under the authority of NIXI, the National Internet eXchange of India.
The new era for .IN began with a Sunrise Period. Owners of registered Indian trademarks or service marks who wished to protect their marks were given the opportunity to apply for .IN domain names before the general public. Sunrise applications were taken from January 1 to January 21, 2005. The date for the opening of real-time, open registration for the general public was February 16, 2005.
Since .IN enables you to protect your business online, a domain with .IN makes your web address unique and easy to memorize. A .IN extension is doing much more, helping you reach and communicate with the audience in India.
