India is on a mission to increase access to the digital world. The Har Ghar Digital, Har Jeevan Digital campaign offers individuals to book a website domain name with registry.in. Individuals can get .in and .भारत (.bharat) for an annual fee of only Rs 75 or $1 only. This digital India campaign is a major opportunity for every working professional as India gets ready to celebrate its 75th Independence Day on August 15, 2022.
Domain names on the Internet are no longer as pricey as they once were. They are more affordable than purchasing a meal. In honor of India’s 75th Independence Day, domain names are available for just Rs 75 per year. This offer is made available by The National Internet Exchange of India (NIXI) as part of its statewide “Har Ghar Digital, Har Jeevan Digital” campaign.
A registration fee of Rs 75 is required to reserve a domain name ending in.IN or. (.bharat). This offer is valid from August 5, 2022, to August 20, 2022. The campaign aims to promote the use of the .in domain and. (.bharat) domain names, as well as Internet use in local languages. This promotion is congruent with the country’s Har Ghar Tiranga initiative, which encourages individuals to display the national tricolor in their homes to commemorate the nation’s 75th anniversary of independence.
According to NIXI, a non-profit organization under the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology, this project would increase the digitalization of multiple businesses, including the MSME, startup, technology, education, and healthcare sectors. The initiative has been launched so every citizen can easily and affordably establish a digital identity. Internet domains with the suffix .com cost approximately Rs 299 per year, rising to Rs 1,000 for more popular names. Other available suffixes include .net,.org,.tv,.shop, and even .in, with prices beginning at Rs 99 per year.
In addition to the inexpensive domain name, users are also eligible to receive a free email address when they sign up for a website. To register, users must visit registry.in, which is the official portal for reserving .in and .भारत domain names. According to a research, many Indians like consuming content in their mother tongue. According to the survey, ninety percent of internet users in India prefer to search and do online chores in their native tongue. Google indicates that “translate”-related search inquiries climbed by more than 50 percent in 2020, while 50 percent of Google Discover users consumed information in Indian languages.
