Here's the plan (.рф)

Auto translation:

Minkomsvyazi June 25, reported that Russia presented the international community to plan for the introduction of Cyrillic domain top level. RF. С презентацией России были ознакомлены в Сиднее участники международной конференции ICANN (Интернет-корпорации по управлению доменными именами и числовыми рядами). The presentation of Russia were introduced in Sydney, The International Conference ICANN (Internet Corporation for management of domain names and numeric series). По словам замминистра связи и массовых коммуникаций России Алексея Солдатова, страна "организационно и технически готова к приему кириллического корневого домена". According to the Deputy Minister of Communications and Mass Communications of Russia Alexei Soldatov, country "organizationally and technically ready to receive Cyrillic root domain.


As noted by Soldatov, "participants in the process of formulation of global rules and standards were pleasantly surprised that the Russian Internet community, and Coordination Center had done so many, and Russia organizationally and technically ready to receive Cyrillic root domain.

В ноябре 2008-го президент России Дмитрий Медведев высказал свое полное одобрение идее о внедрении национального домена. In November 2008 the first President of Russia Dmitry Medvedev expressed his full endorsement of the idea of introducing a national domain. "Мы должны сделать все от нас зависящее, чтобы в будущем добиться присвоения доменных имен на кириллице. Думаю, что у нас есть шансы добиться этого от интернет-сообщества. Я рассматриваю эту задачу как политическую", - сказал он тогда. "We must do everything we can to achieve in the future the attribution of domain names in Cyrillic. I think we have a chance to do so from the Internet community. I regard this task as a political", - he said then.

Yep, they are already opening the hatches on the missile silos, just in case the Commerce Dept has other ideas!

Re: Here's the plan (.рф)

But only Russian passport holders can register the .рф. Am I right? http://www.idnforums.com/forums/2182...light=passport

If a Russian citizen does not have a passport, can he/she still be able to register .рф?

This will make the .рф less attractive to investors due to small size aftermarket, since the rule blocks the majority of capital source in the world to flow into the .рф space.

All Russian citizens are required to have passports, which come in 2 flavours: for living inside Russia, and for living or traveling outside of Russia.

Re: Here's the plan (.рф)

While some cctlds have physical presence requirement (a local address), .рф requires citizenship. It is much tougher.

Probably be relaxed at a later date after the landrush has subsided.

Actually, as of October 1st, 2009, you'll need a passport if you want to register either .РФ or .RU. Making a .com alternative look more and more attractive.
