    Renewal costs are always a pain in the back. Well i have a simple remedy for this. Stop wasting your money renewing and registering anything less than mediocre domains (things get bit subjective here, but use wisdom), unless you are the end user. Actively develop or sell your top ones to get enough buffer to afford your mediocre ones.

    At the end of the day, its is highly unlikely that you will get a decent offer on any of your less than average domains. Some of them might sell for $ xxx (by chance) but when you calculate the time and effort involved you might find that you worked for nothing to make that sale.

    Over registration of domains (fuelled by speculation) has led to the introduction of new half baked domain extensions. The net effect of this exercise is 1% of the top domineers who get involved in this actually make some decent money, the rest 99% burn their hands by registering worthless domains.

    Can anyone help by giving us the % of domains without any website?

    Leaving some things which happen by chance and are always unlikely, in simple words lets cut the crap and get to the point. No regrets to say this, but a part of blame goes to the registrars for creating a hype around some of the extensions like .pro, .tel and .mobi. The worse is yet to come.

    Let's wait for Mitsu's post. When it comes to .IN news, I trust them more than other sources.

    Due to some internal issues these steps are taken by Directi Group.


    We are surprised that Indian registrant not yet reported the illegal ban on buydomains.com, sedo.co.uk and other websites yet on this forum ? All these websites are blocked by ISP's in India............Just think about it....

    We are now keeping some distance from INFORUM that is why you have not got this news from us..........


    @Jeff: can you move this thread to General Discussion...... We think that this is going to be lenghthy thread in future.....

    good!
    let's see if indian cctld is less abused being so cheaply priced that anyone can register and let it expire after a year just for monetizing purpose. i will ove to see the trend after this announcement.

    i will also reqwuest everyone, do not list any domain for sale. i persionally do not list any domain for sale (as most of my domains are either develoepd to websites or are mini-sites).

    i will need to know more about as DNK asked Mitsu..

    Its not surprising for us to see Sedo.co.uk (sedo.in forwards to this domain) is blocked but not sedo.com (sedo.co.in forwards to this site). Yes, nixi will take steps that will ensure supremacy of "Indian" domains in India.

    Re: Directi's .in promo ended

    Owing
    to certain issues being faced by the .IN Registry –
    NIXI, we will unfortunately have to discontinue
    the .IN Promo for the time being.
    Discontinuation
    of the .IN Promo:
    The
    .IN Promo will be terminated on 8th June, 2012 at 12:30 UTC . Once the
    promo has ended, your cost price for Registrations,
    Renewals and
    Transfer-Ins of .IN and
    Third-Level .IN Domains will revert to slab
    based pricing as follows:

    I do not think there is blanket ban. In any case NIXI has to counter the .org promo (curently selleing at about Rs 150).

    Today we have received hundreds of calls and panic emails about .IN registration and registry : We summarize the things below best of our knowledge :

    1. .IN registry not terminated the promo of .IN domains and they will continue the same till 30th June, 2012 as announced earlier, some registrars discontinued the promo due to some policy issues with registry.

    2. There is not any such news which cause so much panic among IN registrant, as far as we know .In registry informed all registrar that there is some policy issues where they are instructed by some law binding authorities to check the abusive registrations.

    And we think that this is not at all a panic issue as if you have not done any abusive registration which is used in spam or any kind of phishing scam then there is no reason to fear. On the contrary these measures are good for the health of registry.

    Shocking news is ban on some websites in India, this is really a matter of concern for all of us, and our last post was in that reference only. We will try our best to bring back them to Indian internet space.

    Mitsu's Stand On Current Promo and Policy Issues :

    1. We will announce by 11th June, 2012 about our stand on this. But for sure we are going to increase our promo registration , renewal and transfer price by at least INR 20/= due to increased administrative work.

    2. All customers and resellers whose domains are involved in spam and in any kind of illegal activity in the past OR On the face of the registration if it looks abusive or potential spam domain names, then we are suspending their access to panel and scan all domains of the particular customer for any kind of abuse, so NO REASON TO PANIC, customers and resellers whose accounts are in investigations are already informed by email.

    If you have any questions do write to us or PM us we will be happy to clarify you about our stand.
