Dear colleagues!

Great news regarding the open registration for Russian IDN .РФ
During the first hour we’ve got 36607 new domains registered.
During the second hour we've got 43054 and during the 3rd hour
we've got 41456 new registrations easily passing the benchmark of
100.000 new domains. Before the start we’ve got 18000+ domains
registered during priority registration for trade mark owners.
This clearly demonstrates a great demand for domains in
national languages and proves Russia’s position  as a
leader in terms of the dynamic of TLD launch.
Due credit should go to the international community  and
their approach to extending the name space.


Andrei Kolesnikov,
Coordination center for top level domain .RU
