Begun goes Cyrillic

Thousands of .рф are live, around 19k registered in the early stages, around 80k and growing daily have been requesting registrations and the requests will continue until November 11.

From those thousands there are Governmental agencies, Corporations, Banks etc but some are more significant then others.

Begun which Google wanted to buy (around 140 million $) but the deal was blocked by Russian govt announced it chose to get бегун.рф

They explain that they feel Cyrillic domains will be more convenient to users, users who are 45 years old or more in particular.

Re: Begun goes Cyrillic

The opposite approach was taken by Яndex, which switched to Яндекс as soon as .РФ was announced.
