Email.biz Booming After Star-Studded Launch Party in India - Founder Coming to T.R.A.F.F.I.C. Las Vegas + Directi Launches .IN.NET & SEOBlog.com Makes Debut

Lots of ground to cover today!  Back in December I told you about .BIZ baron Anshul Goyal and the new email service he was developing at Email.biz. This is a big time effort and Goyal made that clear at the official Email.biz launch party last month in New Delhi, India where he was accompanied by the service's new brand ambassador, Bollywood film star and supermodel Yaana Gupta. You can see the full press release about the Email.biz launch here (.pdf file).

Registered users of Email.biz can choose from over 20,000 premium domains (including one and two letter domains) to create an email address incorporating their name, company’s name or their nickname. Users can also

check mail from all of their accounts at other services from within their Email.biz account, making it a one stop solution. 

If you are going to next week's T.R.A.F.F.I.C conference in Las Vegas, you can get more details about the rapidly growing service directly from Anshul who will be flying in from India for the conference. 

Speaking of T.R.A.F.F.I.C. Las Vegas, show founder Rick Schwartz announced this morning that the show is responding to requests for a one-day pass to specific days at the event that runs May 29-June 1 at the Bellagio Hotel

To meet those requests, Schwartz created two additional pass options:

Pass #1 includes the Wednesday Night Opening Cocktail party PLUS all Thursday events, including Breakfast, Lunch, Seminars,

Auction, Party and the Best Networking in the Industry. The cost for that is $1395.

Pass #2 includes the Thursday Night Water School Party plus all Friday events, including Breakfast, Networking Lunch, Seminars and After Party. Cost for that is $895 including the $50 donation to the Water School on your behalf.

Schwartz noted, "Personally I don't encourage one day passes because you are truly not getting the total benefit of what we do, but I do understand some schedules these days are very tight so we are making this accommodation for the show. "

Elsewhere, the Directi Group, India’s largest supplier of domain names, has launched a new internet addressing domain, .IN.NET. The new privately operated, Indian focused address will offer shorter, more memorable names that are otherwise hard to find in .com, .net or .in.  Directi Group Founder and CEO Bhavin Turakhia said, "Our aim is to make name scarcity a non-issue and offer all Indians a short, memorable name at a very affordable price.”  

.IN.NET will launch with a 42-day Landrush & TM Claims service starting June 18, 2013, where customers can pre-register for generic, premium names and brand names can block their domain names to prevent cybersquatting. Open registrations on a first-come, first-served basis will start August 1, 2013.

In other launch news, Michael Cyger, who runs the popular DomainSherpa.com video blog, is branching out with a new information service for the search engine optimization industry that debuted today at  SEOBlog.com (a news aggregation service similar to what Domaining.com offers in the domain industry).

Cyger said, "The purpose of SEOBlog.com is to aggregate the best thought leadership from search engine optimization professionals. Yes, people can create a Twitter feed of their favorite blogs or receive emails from them all, but getting the best blogs in one place is how we're adding value. SEOBlog.com saves members time, our most precious resource."

"All blogs are curated, reviewed and approved by an SEOBlog.com editor," Cyger added. "We also provide access to the best blogs in a variety of ways:

* Summary format on the website SEOBlog.com

* The most popular stories, as determined by readers, emailed daily.

* All headlines via twitter.com/seoblog and facebook.com/seoblogcom

With Michael you can be sure you will find a professional and informative service at SEOBlog.com.
