About 6 months ago I made a list of about 500+ .co.in & .in domains that I was looking at registering. I purchased about 100+ of the ones that I like the best and left the rest for later or in this case other people. One domain that I did not register was pvcpipes.in. A very good name but I had others to deal with. Well checking back on it and others I see that quite a few of them have been registered by companies and NOT (as far as I can tell) by domainers. The company that now owns pvcpipes.in is a manufacturer in India of you guessed it! PVC Pipes. It is a trend that I think will get stronger as the Indian domain market gets more recognition from the Indian population. What other choice do local Indian businesses have if the .com of their generic domain is gone? Hey lets get our own ccTLD instead. It will be a great deal cheaper and in most cases more relevant to people in India. IMHO the Indian market is where the .com market was 10 years ago. If you do your research and look at the stats for strong keyword rich domains you WILL find some great unregistered domains today that someone or some company will want tomorrow or 6 months from now. I am putting a great deal of time and money into this and I am confident that it will pay off over the next few years. Shame I did not register pvcpipes.in, could of had a buyer. PS. www.pvcpipes.co.in is still available Cheers Ed Keay-Smith Domains, Domain Name News and Domain Names Information.
