Serbian .rs Domains Expected to Launch January 10, 2008. Applications Accepted Now.
On October 26, 2007, Serbian Registry of Domain Names (RNIDS) adopted new regulations on .rs ccTLD. .rs stands for the Republic of Serbia. It was previously .yu ccTLD, which stood for Yugoslavia.
According to the new regulations, both foreign and domestic individuals and legal entities are now eligible to register an unlimited number of .rs domains in Serbia. In the past, it was only domestic legal entities that were eligible to obtain .yu ccTLD and were only allowed one domain per entity. Foreign registrants are required to provide a local administrative contact.
Most importantly, while .rs domains are scheduled to launch on January 10, 2008, the applications for .rs domains are being accepted now. We recommend preventative measures and advise all clients to submit applications now in order to reserve .rs domains before the expected launch in January 2008.
