The in. domain is particularly useful if you are creating a website that is specifically targeted at the Indian market. This domain extension ensures that the person who sees the website will know that it is designed to target the Indian country specifically and it may also originate from there.
This domain extension is used in a number of scenarios. First, it is used where the website contains information that is only accurate within the context of India such as Indian law. Second, it can be used where the website is written in a local language such as Hindi. This tells the viewer that unless they speak the language, the website will not be of much use to them. Third, websites that have an international presence will create an iteration of their website that is targeted at specific markets. These country specific domains will usually be denoted by the country domain extension. Lastly, where the website is designed to be accessible only within a particular region such as government websites, they’ll use this domain extension to indicate that.
So how can you acquire a .in domain? First, you can buy domain from companies that sell domains or alternatively from the company or person who previously held the domain. When you buy a new domain, you’ll register it under your name and create an account with the domain registrar that contains your details. You can buy the name from someone who had it and did not want it anymore. When you do this, you’ll have to undertake a change of details at the domain registry in order to ensure that it is your details used in the registry correctly. The advantage of buying a domain is that you get one that is ready to be used, and all you need to do is fill in your details.
Secondly, you can find a domain registry to register a domain name for you from scratch. Here, you will have to provide the domain name yourself. This means that the domain name that you settle on can never have been used before as it will not be accepted…
