More on .рф

ICANN offered Russia a plan to expedite .рф launch, it will probably enable Russia to launch it without waiting for the policy to finalize.

Re: More on .рф

Thanks for the updates!

Any idea how Russian domainers view the release of .рф? They've been mostly against IDN.com/.net, but how do they feel about .рф?

Can you blame them though?

Government is making .рф it's official extension. All the rest is history really.
BTW, After the govt and tm holders finish registrations and after the auction is over for whatever decent left...
The registration for the public start and based on a press story quoting a Russian official, the reg fee for the 1st few days is 1,000,000 Ruble (appx 29k usd) and a few days after it goes down to 100,000 Ruble etc etc. (http://webplanet.ru/news/business/20...3/domenrf.html)

If anything good will slip through the govt and tm holders hands and make auction, it would be interesting to see what prices it will get.

A lot of press. TV also: http://www.vesti.ru/doc.html?id=278130&cid=8

And on top of all that, there is a very long list of 'offensive' names which cant be regged.

Re: More on .рф

It also means all existing .ru owners are basically holding worthless domains.

Re: More on .рф

I think that even the skeptics today agree that IDN train is moving forward and there is no going back and Russian internet will look very different from its current form 12-18 months from now.
