.RU Domain Registration Policy Change as of April 1, 2010

Mar 30 2010 - 12:30

Starting from April 1, 2010, the official registry of the Russian .RU domain, Coordination Center, will require registrants applying for .RU domain name to show a proof of identity.

This new policy was adopted to curb computer crime, including spam, fraud and obscene content, by making it harder for criminals to register domain names under fake identities.

To verify their identities, natural persons will need to submit a copy of their passport and legal entities a copy of their state registration certificate.

For more information, please contact Jelena Jankovic in our Balkan Regional Office.
