Directi gets into the subdomain game

Directi, fresh from relaunching .pw, will shortly start selling third-level domain names under, mimicking the pseudo-TLD business model most often associated with CentralNic.
The sub-domains will be targeted at the Indian market, with prices expected to be in the sub-$10 range.
Directi is set to launch June 17 with a 42 day “landrush & TM claims service”, apparently merging “premium” name registration with the trademark protection sunrise period.
General availability will begin August 1.
India’s ccTLD is of course .in, and looks a little bit like it.
