Up until recently, it was all but impossible for Bhutanese to acquire domain names that do not end in the country's .bt extension, and to host their websites outside of Bhutan. But with the recent offering by BOB which has just launched the first-ever prepaid VISA card in Bhutan, the game has changed. People who hold the card will be able to easily buy domain names and website hosting online. (They will also be able to make many other types of purchases online, but that's the topic of another post). This means cheaper domain names (.com domain names run for about Nu 400 per year as opposed to 500 to 1000 for .bt domains) and cheaper web hosting. It will be interesting to watch if and how DrukNet, Bhutan's ISP, will react to all of this.
