The National Internet Exchange of India (NIXI) is a non-profit organisation formed under Section 8 of the Companies Act 2013 and was established on 19th June 2003. NIXI was set up for extending the use of Internet Service Protocols (ISPs) for the purpose of routing the domestic traffic within the country, instead of taking it all the way to abroad, thereby resulting in a better quality of service (reduced latency) and reduced bandwidth charges for ISPs by saving on international bandwidth. The Government of India delegated the operations of INRegistry to NIXI in 2004. The INRegistry operates and manages India’s .IN ccTLD (Country Code Top Level Domain).
