    5 Top Reasons to Register a .ASIA Domain

    February 23, 2010 // No Comments »

    Considering all the turmoil going on in Asia with .CN Domains, this may be the best timing for .ASIA to make some head-way.

    Top 5 Reasons to register .ASIA Domains:
    With all the restrictions CNNIC has now imposed on .CN Domains, why not change to a TLD that provides security and stability and is used and commonly known for ASIA?

    Recently, CNNIC the official TLD Registry of China disabled .CN registrations from international registrars, meaning international accredited registrars were no longer permitted to register .CN Domains on behalf of their customers.  Just recently CNNIC has opened registrations once again for international registrars, however the burden is now on the registrars to collect the required documentation from the registrant prior to submitting the registration request.  With all this manual work, the prices of .CN Domains are bound to sky-rocket or you may even see many registrars start taking .CN off the shelf.  It is very unfortunate that it had to come this far with .CN Domains.  Everything was working fine without any problems, until CNNIC started giving away .CN Domains at a few cents, basically opening the gates to Spammers worldwide.  Based on the above one should now consider if a .CN Domains is the right choice.  Given all of the above, I would recommend going with a .ASIA Domain, which is stable and secure.

    #2: Anybody can register a .ASIA domain, quickly and easily without the hassle of documentation

    An .ASIA Domain can be registered within seconds and no additional documentation is required.  You immediately know, if you got the domain or not, thus providing more security and stability to the registrant.

    #3: Asia is the market of tomorrow.  Did you know, that a .ASIA Domain improves SEO for searches relevant to the Asia Market?  With all other SEO elements held equal, domain anmes make a difference in search results.  The term “ASIA” itself is already one of the most popular search keywords.  A “.ASIA” domain helps improve search engine rankings naturally, especially when Internet users search for information about Asia.  Getting a .ASIA is a cheap and efficient way of increasing your SEO.

    #4: Did you know, that every .ASIA registrations helps fund community work in ASIA?
    DotASIA has a core mandate towards digital inclusion, education and development.  Today, DotAsia is already supporting many major community projects: Relief.ASIA, ISIF.ASIA (R&D Grants Fund), CreativeCommons.ASIA, OLPC.AISA (One-Laptop-Per-Child initiative in Asia), … and many more.  Every registration contributes funds to the social and technical development of the Internet throughout Asia.

    #5: How likely is your desired domain to be taken beneath .COM and still available in .ASIA?  Very likely indeed.  The .ASIA namespace is still fairly young, hence the chances of your desired domain name taken beneath .ASIA is significantly lower than searching for your domain in .COM.
