Here is a shocker!
.in domain name whois privacy feature has been withdrawn by INRegistry! Sick!
All of sudden one of my .in domains failed to resolve. I had no clue what is going on. A quick check revealed that domain was still pointing to correct DNS and it was resolving correctly. There was no issue at the hosting.
Finally I gave up and decided to check with registrar who replied that INRegistry has removed WHOIS privacy from all .in domains and those domains which have been using WHOIS privacy has been marked INACTIVE by INRegistry.
First of all if INRegistry has disabled the whois privacy then how could they say that I still have whois privacy on my domain?
Sounds idiotic but logic doesn’t work with these “langoors” in Delhi.
My registrar advised me to remove whois privacy in order to lift the inactive status on the .in domain.
I checked INRegistry website (a piece of rubbish) to find out any news but as expected there is no new on the site.
So if your .in domain doesn’t work, then all you need to do is to remove WHOIS privacy and contact INRegistry or your registrar to make your domain active.
