  1. plz tell about custom domain. My domain is www.readmeout.co.in. How to stop country redirection??

    1. Hi Shubham
      Your custom domain .co.in is fixed, i checked there is no redirection.

  2. International targeting is not possible with .co.in domain. What to do?? It is fixed for india

    1. first answer of your question is buy .com domain for international targeting or .co.in is also good anyway. and it is indian domain but every international visitor can visit your website and will rank, you no need to worry about your .co.in domain because you are using custom domain.
