ICANN Approves Ukrainian Cyrillic .укр Domain
The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) has approved Ukraine’s Cyrillic country code top-level domain (ccTLD) name extension .укр (ukr). Ukraine has therefore successfully passed the second stage in the process of obtaining a non-Latin domain and is now awaiting the final step in the process – the domain delegation.
During the first stage, Ukraine prepared all the necessary documents, determined the domain operator and submitted the request to ICANN on November 16, 2009.
During the second stage, the applicant has to meet a specific set of linguistic and technical requirements required under the ICANN’s IDN (Internationalized Domain Name) ccTLD Fast Track String Evaluation.
Approximately 800,000 domain names have already been registered in the Russian .рф domain zone, which was the first Cyrillic ccTLD that ICANN delegated, on May 13, 2010.
For more information, please contact Maya Kryvoshei at our Ukraine office.
