“We are excited at the prospect of working with Network Solutions. ” said Sid Ohri, COO. “Their extensive infrastructure and brand recognition will be invaluable in promoting the .desi gTLD”. The focus of .desi is the global diaspora and emerging markets within the Indian Subcontinent. “We believe that .desi is unique amongst the majority of domains being offered because it has the potential to unite a largely underserved community in a very meaningful way,” states Ohri.
“desi” is derived from Sanskrit and refers to the culture, people and products originating from the Indian sub-continent (India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, and Sri Lanka). It immediately evokes a sense of identity and community among the more than 1.5 billion people around the globe. No other top level domain triggers such immediate recognition from so many.
.desi has been delegated and the .desi team is working on an international launch plan and brand awareness initiatives. Look for information on the upcoming Sunrise and Landrush phases scheduled to start in June 2014.
