Hi rex, from what I understand, it's only worth registering third level domains like .ind.in and .net.in if you have a very strong/premium keyword.

In answer to your question, I prefer .net.in. I think the ".ind" stands for "individual(s)" although I suppose you could always brand it differently.

Agree with prior comments. Also, people are used to "net" than "ind" extension, so it might make recall easier.

thanks ceres,

thanks for reading my post and reply. One more doubt is , if i host a domain which is with net.in extension , will it have a problem to get indexed in search engine. I am planned to take a domain for name of a place in kerala.

if you dont mind can you tell me other drawbacks of the net.in and ind.in
Since i got with the correct name . i want to make sure that , it should not be waste of time and money.

thanks and regards

No, Google and Yahoo indexes .net.in just fine. See Google index of .net.in domains and Yahoo index of .net.in domains. You'd only have indexing problems if, for example, your site was flagged for not meeting Google's webmaster guidelines.

A .net.in will be harder to sell than a .in and .co.in etc.

You might lose visitors/traffic to the .in (for example, users might accidentally type Abc.in instead of Abc.net.in).
