New statistical data for the .IN domain has been posted by the Registry of the Indian country code extension.
Until recently, little has been reported about the .IN domain, despite considerable interest. Registration rankings and domain industry reports did not include information about the .IN extension. However, thanks to the recent posts on the .IN Registry’s website, the global domain community can now access new information about this promising domain.
At the moment, there are 2,067,508 registered names within the .IN domain, according to the Registry. The Indian extension was released in 2004 and serves various sectors of the diverse Indian population of 1.25 billion. In order to accommodate various linguistically distinct areas, IDNs (Internationalised Domain Names) are also available under .IN in seven Indian languages.

.Bharat in Devanagari

.Bharat in Telugu
.Bharat in Gujarati
.Bharat in Urdu
.Bharat in Tamil
.Bharat in Gurumukhi (Punjabi
Even though the Internet is not equally accessible across India and some areas are struggling economically, the rising number of registered domain names under .IN paints an optimistic picture of the .IN domain’s future. The development of both primary and secondary domain market in India looks promising and stirs interest among investors. Despite little popularity on the global market at the moment, the .IN extension holds a promise for the future and may become a valuable player.
