.IN is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for India. The domain is operated by IN Registry under the authority of NIXI, the National Internet Exchange of India. The registry basically functions as an autonomous body with the main responsibility for maintaining the .IN ccTLD and ensuring its operational constancy and dependability.
There are not one but several advantages that a user has on registering a .IN domain in India. The first benefit a user has is that there are more availability options. For example, a domain name ending with the popular.COM extension is likely to be already taken, but a .IN might not be. This simply doubles the number of names that you can choose for your domain.
Another benefit of .IN domain names is for enterprises that are aiming to set up their businesses in India. Selecting a .IN domain can be a smart move for business. The registrants of .IN domain names do not have to be citizens of India, nor do they require a physical address in India. By simply registering .IN domains, businesses can easily target the large audience base in India in their localized language.
