Protecting Your .IN Domain

The .IN Registry has prepared the below advisory for .IN domain owners to assist them with protecting their domain name. Please feel free to distribute the following to your clients.



After you register your .IN domain name and build your online presence, it's important for you to understand how to protect your .IN domain name.
Your .IN domain name also has value-both in monetary terms and in terms of the message you send by having a .IN identity. Chances are you wouldn't give away your domain name to a group or an individual who promotes products and services that are counter to your mission, nor are you likely to sell your .IN domain name to businesses that sell products or services you deem inappropriate. That's why .IN Registry, wants to help make sure your .IN domain name doesn't inadvertently fall into the wrong hands.



Registering recently expired domains has resulted in a number of cases where expired domain names are registered and utilized in a fashion that is counter to the mission and intention of the original owner.



Every day, many .IN domain names become available because domain holders, also known as registrants, allowed them to expire or were unaware that the domain names were up for renewal. And every day, those same .IN domain names become vulnerable to companies and individuals who can exploit them for economic gain, without regard for their actual use or meaning. The process of obtaining expired domain names has become sophisticated, automated, and increasingly popular. And the consequences to the original .IN domain holders can be serious.



We believe the best way to protect your .IN domain name is to take proactive and preventive measures.



See these Simple Steps to protect your .IN domain name today:



1. Verify Registration of Your .IN Domain Name
Whether you registered your .IN yourself or whether someone else in your organization was responsible for registering it, it's essential that you verify that you or an authorized representative of your organization has been named as the registrant. A simple visit to the WHOIS (Whois lookup | Registry.In)
is a good first step. There you can view the name of the registrant, administrative contact, and technical contact for your .IN domain(s). You can also find the name of the registrar through which your .IN domain was registered.



2. Verify and Update and Administrative Contact Information Regularly
Consider making it organizational policy to regularly verify and update .IN domain name information. If it's your responsibility to keep the information updated, put it on your calendar for verification twice a year. If instead it's
the responsibility of a staff member, instruct the staff member to schedule the task for twice a year. In fact, having two staff members responsible for checking domain information is even better. Any information pertaining to your .IN domain that needs changing can be updated by contacting and working with your registrar.



3. Check that Email Contact Information is Valid
Registrars are the organizations that provide registration services for the public, and the most common way they notify .IN registrants of domain name renewal is by e-mail. If you can't be reached by email, it's possible your domain name will expire without your knowledge. Therefore, it's essential that the email addresses on file with your registrar be current. You can see whose e-mail address is on file when reviewing your .IN domain name WHOIS information at Welcome to .IN Registry : | Registry.In. And you can update your e-mail contact information by contacting and working with your registrar.



4. Register Your .IN for Maximum Period of Time
The maximum registration period for a .IN domain name is 10 years. Consider registering your .IN domain name for the maximum period of time at initial registration or even at the time of renewal.



5. Ask your registrar to place Client Update, Client Transfer prohibited statuses on Your Domain Name so it can only be updated and transferred when you intend to do so Client Update and Client Transfer Prohibited domain statuses means that your domain name is "locked" and it can't be transferred or updated until the said statuses are removed.
