What is domain registered for?
Prospects of Tajik Internet segment development
Rapid development of Tajik Internet segment now causes obvious interest inside the country, as well as among business circles of foreign countries. Such growth is based on a few objective factors. First of all it is human resources. According to analysts’ estimations, Tajnet audience consists of 27-30 thousand people, while it is not limited only by Tajikistan, it is spread all around the world. The capacity of advertising market in the Internet-environment is appraised at one and a half – two thousand dollars per month (the calculations were held on the basis of 1-2 dollars per 1000 ad impressions). The number of Internet users in Tajikistan is growing fast, and in proportion to this the number of web sites is growing too.
The dynamics is displayed in figures. In 2005 about 1300 domains were registered, in 2006 this number had grown to 2000 domains. Of course, these rates can’t concur with worldwide monsters of Internet-industry that own considerable part of world Internet-resources. However, if to take into account that .TJ national zone became available for registration only in 2004, the results seem impressive.
Obviously the prospects of Internet-environment development have economic preconditions.

The interest to economy of Tajikistan from the side of foreign investors is very high and continues to grow.

For instance, by the end of 2006 investments into economy of Tajikistan from the side of China had exceeded 300 million dollars.

Foreign mobile operators, including Megafon, BeeLine and worldwide TeliaSonera Company under Tcell brand, are also popular.
