    India is now officially entrusting its national ccTLD, dot .IN, to Neustar.

    The technology services company announced the completion of the final steps to providing full back-end support to the .IN domain Registry, Nixi.

    Some key points from the event:

    • In August 2018 Neustar was awarded the contract to be Technical Service Provider (TSP) for the .IN ccTLD by the National Internet Exchange of India (NIXI), following a Request for Proposal process.
    • Following the award and signing of the contract in October, work commenced immediately on preparing for the transition scheduled for 28 February, along with a maximum 48-hour maintenance period during which time access to the .IN Registry would be cut-off for new domain registrations, as well as updates to existing domains. The transition ran very smoothly and was completed at 00:01 UTC, March 01, 2019.
