The focus of .desi is the global diaspora and emerging markets within the Indian Subcontinent. “We are excited at the prospect of working with OpenSRS.” said Sid Ohri, COO. “Their extensive presence and brand recognition in North America and Europe will be invaluable in promoting the .desi gTLD in these markets”. “.desi is a domain with a very clear purpose and we are excited to offer it to our reseller channel.” said David Woroch, EVP Wholesale at OpenSRS.
“desi” is derived from Sanskrit and refers to the culture, people and products originating from the Indian Subcontinent (India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, and Sri Lanka). It immediately evokes a sense of identity and community among the more than 1.7 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 Landrush and General Availability phases scheduled to start in Q3 2014.
