Macedonia Launches Campaign for Registering Cyrillic Domain Name

Nov 28 2012 - 15:28

The Macedonian Academic Research Network (MARnet), responsible for managing and servicing Macedonia’s Latin top-level domain .mk, has recently launched a campaign for registering the Cyrillic top-level domain. Macedonian citizens are invited to submit proposals for a Cyrillic domain name by December 3.

MARnet will review the proposals and select the extensions that satisfy the prescribed technical criteria. The extension needs to be in the official language of the country and represent the full name, part of the name, or an abbreviated form of the name of the country; it also needs to be different from the Latin domain name .mk.

After selecting the extensions that satisfy these criteria, MARnet will post the proposals on its website where citizens, associations and legal entities will have one month to vote. The proposal that wins the most votes will be included in the official request for initiating the process for obtaining a Cyrillic domain that will be submitted to the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN).
