Domains Ending in .in, Rather than .com

Recently, it became possible to register domains ending in .in, rather than .com, .net, etc.

The .in suffix actually stands for India, but its practical value is totally unrelated to that fact. Since .in looks and reads as the word "in", you can create an infinite number of domain names that read as phrases ending with the word "in".

As in... (too bad, somebody already bought, but now you get the idea).

I picked up, a good marketing vehicle for any company selling spa goods and services, expensive clothing or other luxe goods and services.

I checked out about 20 "in" phrases, and nearly all were taken. TheFixIs.In was still available, and if you put your mind to it, you can surely think of many valuable .in domains worth investing a few dollars "in".

Just today, as a GodDaddy customer, I received a special offer -- $14.99 for a one-year .in domain registration. That's more than the $10 or so you can register a .com domain for, but about half the price normally charged for a foreign domain. A good deal!
