Sub Domain (fourth-level) Registration Services:

This section of the site allows you to register Sub Domains (fourth-level), if you are already holding a third-level domain name (eg. xyz.gov.in) under GOV.IN and the third level domain is hosted with NIC.

  • The state governments can register a third-level domain name under GOV.IN and then the fourth-level sub domains can be registered for its various Ministries / Departments / Organisations etc.... For example, Government of Delhi may register a third-level domain name like delhi.gov.in and then the fourth-level sub domains may be registered for its various Departments like education.delhi.gov.in, tourism..delhi.gov.in, transport.delhi.gov.in, etc...

  • Similarly a Department/Organisation can register a third-level domain name under GOV.IN and then the department can register fourth-level domains for its branches/divisions/offices across the country. For example, Comptroller and Auditor General of India(CAG) may register third-level a domain like cag.gov.in and then it may register the fourth-level domains for its various offices across the country like agup.cag.gov.in, agmp.cag.gov.in, agtn.cag.gov.in etc...

  • Guidelines for obtaining a sub domain name are same as GOV.IN Domain name

  • Conditions:
  • The Fourth-level sub domain registrations are entertained here only for the third-level domains hosted with NIC. If you are already having a third-level domain name, but the domain is hosted with other ISP (not NIC), then contact the ISP to delegate sub domains. If you are not at all owning a third-level domain name under GOV.IN, you can visit the website http://registry.gov.in to register a Domain name.

  • Even though the State/Department have more than one Domain Name, the sub domain (fourth-level) delegations will be permitted only under one third-level domain name chosen by the State/Department as its permanent name. For example, the Government of Haryana may own more than one third level domains like haryana.gov.in & hr.gov.in. But the sub domain delegation is permitted either on haryana.gov.in or on hr.gov.in not on both.

  • The eligibility requirements for obtaining a sub domain is as same as GOV.IN Domain eligibility requirements

  • The domain naming conventions are also as same as GOV.IN Domain Naming Conventions
