India is the second largest country in the world with over 1.2 billion people living there. It makes sense that the domain market in India is growing.
This morning, CIOL.COM published an interview with GoDaddy Vice President and Managing Director for India, Rajiv Sodhi. CIOL is billed as “India’s premier business technology community network.” Sodhi discusses the current state of the domain name market in India, and he offers some of his thoughts on domain name investing in India. I think You will want to read the interview in its entirety, but the jist of it is that there is tremendous potential for growth in India.
There are currently two domain name conferences on the calendar for later on this year in India.
DOMAINXâ„¢ 2014 is scheduled for September 7, 2014 in Hyderabad, India. There is a robust list of speakers from around the world listed as participants for this one-day domain conference. The schedule has not yet been posted, but Ron Jackson shared some additional information about the event.
I was also recently made aware that the Indian Domain Owners Association (IDOA) is organizing an event called World Domain Day on 24th August in Hyderabad, India. Like DOMAINXâ„¢ 2014, there is a diverse group of speakers scheduled to participate.
In addition to these domain industry specific conferences that are on the calendar, GoDaddy was also a main sponsor of World Hosting Days India held in Mumbai in May of this year. From what I understand, there was significant interest in the sessions that covered domain name investing.
India is a massive marketplace, and the domain name market seems to be growing.
