Examples of endusers buying .IN domains


New Member
I came across another example of an end user acquiring an Indian domain. XTB.in redirects to in.xtb.com. Whois shows that X-Trade Brokers Dom Maklerski got this domain in Oct. 2008.

The domain sold in 2008 for $1,550.

The Sedo sale of iTax.in in Nov. 2009 was to an end user (sold for $750). Whois shows that the new owner is the Swiss software company Ringler Informatik AG. The domain currently forwards to DrTax.com.


I sold ShareNews.co.in (Hand Reg) for $50 in one month of registration, the guy who purchased is looking to develop it in News Sharing website..

Leap.in was acquired by Leap In Entertainment (domain sold for $3,000 at Sedo in May 2008).

I never noticed this end-user sale until now because "Leap.in" resolves to a parked domain but "www.leap.in" resolves to website (company needs some SEO help ;)).

It looks like an interesting website - not sure if it's still in beta (company also owns justleapin.com).

Sunburn.in (INR 50,000 or approx. $1,100, private sale Feb 2011)

Website operated by Percept Property in partnership with Nikhil Chinapa (MTV presenter). The site promotes the Sunburn Festival, an annual outdoor music festival held in Goa.

domainerin observed in another post:

sunburn would get a lot of typein's since its one of the best dj fests in goa thats organized by nikhil chinapa in december last week every year.

I agree. It makes sense for them to own this domain and now they do. :)

See domain sales thread

whitefield.in 650$

Whitefield is a suburb of Bangalore - very modern and saturated with Indian technology industry. I'm not sure if that domain was purchased as a geo-location or for some business name.

Looks like a business name. Website now live.
Whitefield.in - Whitefield offers a variety of marketing solutions.

Hi all!I'm a new domainer from the netherlands. It's great to be here! Very interesting facts on here, thanks a lot!
I'm thinking of kinda specialising in asian extensions.
I've read this thread and now I wonder, do sellers contact potential end users directly? I have some .in domains related to some of india's major industries.
I'm affraid that if I contact manufacturers directly they'll be insulted.

Hope to get to know you all a little better and if I can be of any help, I would be glad to!
