Indonesia domain name changes

Image result for PANDI INdonesiaSince opening on August 17, 2014, registrations for the new domain reached 8,500 new .id domain names.

The naming rules however have proven difficult for personal Indonesian registrants. The rules allow personal users to register domain names for names stated on their identity cards. However, many Indonesian people use nick names. Also it is nearly impossible to alter names in identity cards. It is quite normal for Indonesians to operate in society with a different name from the one on their identity card.

So from March 1st 2015, PANDI adjusted the naming rules. Now Indonesian people may register any domain name without specific reference to their identity card on a first-come-first-served basis. This runs the risk that there will be numerous people unable to use their own name. But at least PANDI will sell more domain names this way!
