Empowers Resellers to pre-register the TLD meant especially for the travel industry

July 20, 2005; 05:44 AM

July 20, 2005 - (, one of the fastest growing ICANN accredited registrars and leading Web Services Company, today announced that it can accept registrations for the recently launched .TRAVEL TLD meant specifically for travel and tourism related organisations and companies. DirectI was among the first few registrars to get accredited for the restricted TLD.

“The travel industry has been witnessing a tremendous boom worldwide. We completely support ICANN’s decision for a separate TLD exclusively meant for the travel and tourism sectors. The launch of .TRAVEL will not only boost the industry’s growth rate but also offer a unique alternative to registrants from the saturated .COM / .NET domain name space,” said Bhavin Turakhia, Chairman and CEO, DirectI.

The .TRAVEL TLD will be available to all DirectI resellers for registration and help them offer a wide bouquet of TLDs and related services in turn to their sub-resellers and customers. The move will spur the company’s resellers to augment their products and services into the rapidly expanding travel and tourism industry and acquire a larger customer base from around the world.

“After .JOBS and .EU, .TRAVEL accreditation was an obvious next step. The inclusion of newer TLDs and other popular ccTLDs is a part of DirectI’s ongoing strategy to provide our resellers with the best products at the best market prices. Our low priced packages bundled with the latest products permits our resellers to maintain their profit margins and resell at the most competitive prices,” added Bhavin.

DirectI is already among the 10 fastest growing and top 25 domain registrars with a growing list of popular ccTLDs including .US, .UK, .TW, .PK, .IN etc. apart from most of the gTLDs like .COM, .NET, .ORG, .BIZ, .INFO and .NAME.

Tralliance Corporation, the .TRAVEL registry, announced on July 1, 2005 that all registrations for the TLD will have to be pre-authenticated during pre-registration after which the registrant could go live. To register your own .TRAVEL domain name please visit:
