dot ASIA registration opens up for All
The .ASIA registrations opened up for all from 1200 GMT on 26th March. The .ASIA Landrush was a colossal successand it can only be anticipated the .ASIA count to augment further. dot ASIA is a highly recognisable phrase that is short, easy to remember, versatile but specific and focused on the Asia identity. It captures the essence of the community served and is a sustainable phrase that will not easily become obsolete. “Asia” traverses a broad region yet elicits a clear concept and coherence of the community, providing registrants tremendous value in establishing an Internet presence with global recognition and regional significance. The name value for .ASIA is especially remarkable for the thriving SME (small medium enterprises) make-up of the Asia economies. This is amplified even more as these SMEs continue to expand beyond their local market to the regional marketplace leveraging the Internet as a platform for growth.The .ASIA domain can also be naturally used by individuals, businesses, organisations as well as community groups, without constraining to a particular silo within the community, promoting a diverse and dynamic community within the .ASIA namespace. This matches well and is consistent with the multicultural and vibrant community in Asia.
Anyone can now register their desired .ASIA Domain Names on a ‘first come first serve basis’. Also, the minimum registration period is now 1 year, which was 2 years during the landrush period. dot ASIA domains can be registered for Rs. 800/= per domain year.
