Shiksha is a versatile word which means education, learning, school, study, training, or teaching. For example, teaching or training a group or a class always uses the word Shiksha. Originally from the classical language Sanskrit, Shiksha has become a commonly used word in the Hindi language, spoken by over 490 million people, primarily in the Indian subcontinent. While the .EDU TLD today provides a trusted place for the educational community in the USA, .SHIKSHA’s purpose is to establish an easily identifiable place where educational institutions as well as other centers for learning and training can establish their identity on the Internet. .. .SHIKSHA will be an open TLD, generally available to self-selected registrants (except in the Sunrise period). The domains can be used for any legitimate purpose, including for educational use, for personal use and by organizations. There are no content or use restrictions for this TLD, as long as applicable laws are respected. Afilias, the .SHIKSHA Registry Operator, will position, market and manage the .SHIKSHA TLD to become a well-known Internet resource both for entities wishing to serve this market and for schools, institutes, training centers, organizations of higher learning, teachers and businesses looking to promote their services more efficiently.

Domain naming tips

3 basic tips when selecting the right domain name for your website.

Using a local top level domain

If it’s a local business and you want more customers, why not take a look at our domains which are given according to the location you require (.lt , .co.uk, .nyc, .berlin).

Avoid numbers

Avoid the usage of numbers because the people who hear about your website will be having a tough time figuring out if the website contains the number (2) or the number in words (two).

Avoid symbols

Hyphens and dashes will make things complicated and it doesn’t look professional.
