Just received an email from the team at in.com. I was always quite happy to have an email id that was @in.com, in reflection of my country. Sad to see them shut down. Googling around a bit reveals that this was anticipated from January of this year all along, and the company (Web1 laid off about 300 staff. Their major website, tech2 has also been hived off to firstpost and is now a part of their address. A site address (www . in . com ) that was bought for a reported 1 Million dollars in the day and launched and publicized with great fan fare, is now closing. Hoping someone still looks at the potential of the domain and does something about it.
