The acquisition comes as a major breakthrough for the company which is already running India’s largest online network of 350 city-based websites by the name “India Online Network” under the main portal – www.IndiaOnline.in
Each city and state of India has been covered through an identical website like www.DelhiOnline.in, www.MumbaiOnline.in, www.ChennaiOnline.in etc.
Each city website under the network acts as a one stop platform for the users to search for any kind of information within any city of India. Each city site further offers multiple services like – Local Search engine, News and Weather Updates, Classifieds, Events, City Guide, Discussion Forums, Jokes, Games etc. The company has also launched India’s largest mobile app which it calls the IndiaOnline.in Mobile App, which can be downloaded through Google Play Store.
Rahul Jalan, Director of IndiaOnline.in says, “Acquiring the domain IndiaOnline.com is a major breakthrough for us considering the importance of a .com domain for a network like ours. The network will continue to run under the main site www.indiaonline.in and this new domain indiaonline.com will simply be used to redirect users to our main site. This domain was originally owned by a foreign based company and we are extremely proud to bring this domain back to India”.
