Recently, in the Egyptian capital (for those who do not remember - this is Cairo) for the next 33 Conference ICANN formally approved Russia's national Cyrillic top-level domain. They became the domain. Federation. Already defined as a domain administrator - Coordination Center for TLD. RU.
Fully operational domain. Of Russia will begin at the end of June 2009.
After that, the battle for domestic cybersquatters will simply limitless. How many Russian words we all know!
However, there are relevant questions about registration of domains. Federation.
As long as they are being developed and will be announced closer to the date the introduction of the blast zone up - Summer 2009. I think that they will not be very different from the conditions of the registration of domain names in the. RU. But who knows? We'll see.
I also want to say that only Russia has got its own domain zone as another 30 countries have expressed the same desire. But, it's late, Russia was the first (!).
Keep it up!
