Extension of the .РФ Domain Registration Period

The priority period for registration of the .РФ domain was due to end on 25 March after which the exploitation of the newly registered domain names would have begun. However, just a day before the deadline, it was agreed to extend the period of priority registration until 11 May 2010 due to an extensive amount of administrative queries from various organisations, wishing to reserve some domain names. The Coordinating Centre (responsible for formulating the rules related to registration of domain names .RU and .РФ) did not clarify whether the already registered domain names will become active at the end of the extended priority period or at the originally promised end of March/beginning of April.
