Serbia to Get Cyrillic Domain by End of 2010
Serbia is expected to obtain the Cyrillic country code top-level domain (ccTLD) by the end of this year, according to the Serbian National Register of Internet Domain Names (RNIDS) website.
During the past month, Serbian citizens were able to vote for one of the four offered suggestions: .србија (Serbia), .сб (sb), .срб (srb) and .рсб (rsb). The voter turnout was high. The results are expected to be announced by the end of June. The extension that gets the highest number of votes will be submitted to the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) for approval.
The Ministry of Telecommunications and Information Society and the RNIDS representatives, who are communicating with ICANN about the allocation of the new ccTLD, explained that the domain extension has to contain at least one character from the Serbian Cyrillic alphabet, providing it is different from any character in the Latin script.
Domain names in non-Latin scripts have already been launched in Russia, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
