We have now officially launched domain name registrations for the new .ASIA domain name at myhosting.com. If you have not already heard about .ASIA, it is the new top-level domain name for residents and organizations located within the Asia Pacific region.
.ASIA domain names are available at myhosting.com for $11.45/year. And if you are signing up for a new web hosting plan, you can receive your .ASIA domain name registration for FREE!
At first glance, it may seem that registration of .ASIA domain names would be restricted to the Asian continent only, but the availability is much wider than expected. Registration is open to anyone in the entire Asia/Australia/Pacific region. This even includes many countries outside of the Asian continent, like Australia and New Zealand. Of course this also includes other Asian countries including Turkey, Japan, Korea, China, Russia and many more. To see if your country is eligible, simply refer to the geo-region list at ICANN. If your country is listed within the “AP” region, then you are eligible!
To sign up for a .ASIA domain name you can visit myhosting.com and use our domain name lookup tool in the top-left corner. After your search results are completed, click on “Show More” on the left side of the page and the look-up will be performed for all available domain name types, including .ASIA.
