.In TLD information

.In TLD is the Country Code Top-Level Domain for India. This ccTLD was introduced in 1989. But this domain TLD was not very popular until after the liberalization of restriction rules in 2005. Until then (between 1992 and 2004) only about 7000 domain names were said to be registered and even people of India were more interested in traditional domain names like .com, .net and .org. But this scenario changed when they free most of the restrictions for the top level .in TLD and some second level TLDs like .co.in, .net.in and .org.in. Now, anyone in the world can register as many .in domains as they want, same is the case for most of the second level TLDs of India like .net.in, .org.in and .co.in.

Here is an interesting with the ccTLDs of India. Even though .in ccTLD is India’s official tld, as of writing this article, the second level tld of .in, .co.in is more popular in India. It maybe because the .co.in Tld was heavily promoted or the .in tld had any unknown restrictions. But this trend is changing now, more and more people are showing more interest in .in tld than the second level .co.in tld. For a long time most of the netizens that are not very familiar with domain TLDs and ccTLDs thought that the second level .co.in domain tld was India’s official tld. Even I used to think that way until two three years ago. That should tell you how popular the .co.in tld became in India or how widely it spread up on the web. As far as I think, The original ccTLD of India .in must have experienced some problems or had some good restrictions which the .co.in tld didn’t have. Otherwise it should not be like that. But the good thing is .in is fast catching up .co.in tld and people are getting used to it fast.

Below are some more second level TLDs of .in which have restricted use

.ac.in (Academic institutions)

.edu.in (Educational institutions)

.res.in (Indian research institutes)

.ernet.in (Older, for both educational and research institutes)

.gov.in (Indian government)

.mil.in (Indian military)

The above six TLDs are reserved for specific purposes only.

Along with .in, .co.in, .net.in, .org.in some more second level cc TLDs .firm.in, .gen.in, and .ind.in can be registered and used by anyone (unless they have any unknown restrictions not aware by me).
