How it works
The .IN Registry by itself will not carry out registrations. It will do so through a number of Registrars to be appointed by it through an open process of selection on the basis of transparent eligibility criteria. For domain life-cycle: Click here
Frequently Asked Questions
I have been trying to register a one-character or two-letter .IN domain, but can't. Why?+
All one-character and two-character domains, are reserved by government and NIXI order, and are not available to the public.
How to become a registrar?+
Registrars will be officially accredited after their application is accepted by the Registry, applicant sign a contract with the Registry, set up a financial account, and prove their technical ability to interact with the registry system.
Each registrar will use the Extensible Provisioning Protocol (EPP) client to connect to the .IN registry database. The registry provides an EPP toolkit to interested parties. Click here to become Registrar.
How do I make updates to my domain record, or add name servers?+
To make a change, you must send a request to your registrar, who will then put the request through to the .IN registry. NIXI is not allowed to change records directly for registrants. This procedure is true of all domain name registries.
