Talking Russian website www.сіті.com written in russian letters!

Russian website www.сіті.com (Города)
written in russian letters!
This is just an example of what can be done with a a native alphabet!
Letters сіті are both russian and ukranian, and сіті was just a good choice.

www.сіті.com starts with Moscow.
Starts with Moscow and covers London, Paris, NYC, Odessa, Kiev, etc.
YOU CAN SWITCH LANGUAGES!
What some of you may not know is that there are additional letters in the Russian alphabet which you rarely use.
Also, in the 1920s there was a letter h in the russian alphabet.

Yeah, but who cares? Archaic letters which people can't type are useless for domain purposes.

сіті.com can not be typed on a Russian keyboard.

Its as good as asking English speakers to type a domain with the long ſ (long s) in the word Congreſs (Congress).

It looks like the site itself is in English, while the domain is in Ukrainian.

The site switches from English to German to Italian on the fly.
We will add more languages next year.

Then what is the point of having a Ukrainian domain?

Cіті by the way, is not a real Ukrainian word, but a phonetic representation of the English 'citi', which is used as a trademark of CitiBank in Ukraine.

Are you ready to duke it out with CitiBank in court?

Yes.

東京.net is easily typed by Japanese.

Сіті on the other hand, can not be typed by Russian speakers, because the Cyrillic letter і is archaic and not used in modern Russian, and does not appear on any Russian keyboards.

Is Moniker keen on selling phishing domains of this kind?

Re: Russian website www.сіті.com written in russian letters!

No wonder you cannot figure out who will use them, you have missed the point and lost the plot. These kind of phishing domains are utterly worthless, unless you have criminal intent.

Hey, you are the same guy who posts as Mike on domenforum, and claimed to sell a bunch of Russian IDNs for $X,XXX. What's the story with that?

Yes, the level of comprehension of IDN at Moniker appears to be almost as pathetic as that at Sedo.

Re: Russian website www.сіті.com written in russian letters!

It just dawned on me that this guy's intention wasn't to use Russian or Ukraininan to begin with, and he was rather startled at getting that kind of reply from the perspective of a Russian user typing.

What he was onto was this:

CІТІ.com an all Cyrillic phishing domain for citi.com (Citibank)
CІТУ.com an all Cyrillic phishing domain for city.com
