BuyBag.com is the online marketplace that launched a new premium domain, Barca.com, in September 2016.
BuyBog is the domain registrar that launched the domain.
BuyBag is the company that handles the registration, sale and management of the domain and is part of a larger global business called BuyBG, a company founded in 2014 by former Microsoft executive Bill Gates.
In a statement, BuyBags website said that it is a service provider for brands who need a secure, reliable domain name.
The purchase of Barca is a big step in BuyBang’s plan to make its own premium domains, said Shashi Tharoor, former chairman of the All India Progressive Association (AIPAC).
BuyBagan, the company’s online marketplace, had launched a brand-name domain for brands in July 2016, and it had recently launched a domain for domain names.
“It is a sign that BuyBaga has taken its brand to the next level,” Tharool said.
According to Tharoo, BuyBG is one of the most profitable websites in the world and its growth is attributed to its strong online marketplace.
The company had registered its first domain in May this year.
The price of a Barca was Rs 12,000 and the Barka domain has a price tag of Rs 19,000.
The Barca-buy.com domain is for free registration.
“In my opinion, this is a good decision for BuyBagi as it will make its domain more affordable for the consumers,” Tharyoor said.
The company said that the Barba domain was created in cooperation with BuyBG, which had developed an easy to use online interface for buying a domain and registration.
The purchase of the Baraga domain was made through the BuyBG platform, which is an on-demand service provider, BuyBal, which operates the website.
The price of the brand-like domain, which will be offered for free, will be Rs 2,000, a 10% discount off the current Barca price of Rs 7,500, and the price will be valid for four years, the website said.
The sale price of Baraga is Rs 7.5 lakh.
In the statement, Baraga, which means ‘bar’, and Barca were two names of the baratas (Latin words meaning ‘barrier’).
“The baratah domain has two main parts: a bara and a barakah, the latter being a symbol for the name,” the website explained.
The bara part means the name is a bar or barrier.
The name Barca signifies the ‘baratah’ part of the name.
“Baraga is the most popular domain among brands because it offers a wide range of domain services and offers domain names for a price that is much lower than the existing Barca brand name,” BuyBagg said in a statement.
