.РФ instead of .RU

The concept is out for the new cyrillic .rf: http://cctld.ru/ru/domenrf/conceptionrf.php

When the right holders are done (govt and tm holders), nothing decent will be left to register.


Домен .РФ будет являться национальным доменом Российской Федерации и позволит обеспечить адресацию в сети Интернет на русском языке – государственном языке Российской Федерации.

Re: .РФ instead of .RU

It also says that geo names are going to be reserved.

So, since geos.рф are going to be reserved for municipal use, commercial ones will simply have no choice but to go with a .com/.ком. I think our Russian geos just became very expensive.

Good question.

While .com is an easy choice, as both words "company" and "commercial" share the same 3 first letters in Russian - "ком", .net is a tricky one.
