Domain Names are the names for the information’s address on the Internet and are used to locate information on the Internet. This has been possible due to Domain Name System (DNS), which translates these domain names to the IP addresses of the computers.
The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) is responsible for the administration of Top Level Domain Names.
The domain names are allocated by the administrator of the Top Level Domain (TLD), if the requested domain name is not already assigned previoulsy.
The management and operations of .IN Registry are managed by the National Internet Exchange of India (NIXI). IN Registry is now the official registry for registration but this registry does not carry out the functions itself, but through accredits registrars.
Like a trademark, a domain name too is associated with a particular firm and creates a unique identity. In today’s world when most of the work is done on the World Wide Web it can help preventing other people from misleading customers. Hence it is very important to get a domain name registered.
