Real time .In Domain regsitration started from 16th Feb. I registered one domain today “CyberLawyer.in” for 1 year 🙂
Though most common Domain names are not available, as there was some pre-registration process, in which any number of persons can apply for single Domain, and it was mystery as to who will get it. Different companies followed different policies to earn more profits.
I call this process as unfair. As there was some decision by Germany Supreme Court, which said, that Domain name registration can be on first-come basis only. But here companies in order to earn a huge profit, just collecting money from different person for a single Domain Name, by telling things like we are not maintaining any database. It was said to me by Net4India representative 😯
Net4Domain was allowing pre-registration for minimum of 5 years and charging Rs 4,500/- out of which 4,000 was refundable. I paid them in the beginning for “CyberLaw.in” but stopped the payment of cheque. As the process was not transparent :no:
Similarly companies like DirectI, provided for compulsorily registration for two years and further provided that in case two persons apply for same domain name. Then the person bidding for the higher amount will get the domain… a gamble.
In case, you want to register a .IN Domain…
The first company to start Real-time regsitration is… GoodLuck Domains, Chennai…
Though most of the .IN domains are gone, but mostly available under 3rd level Domains.
Still can try your luck :thumb:
