Results of .rs domain registrations after a month


On the first day of registration, 7,000 domains were registered and a total of 15,460 domains were registered during the first month of registration. More than half of these domains (7,600 in total) were registered in the .rs address space of the highest level. Physical persons, who got the possibility to register the national Intеrnеt domain, registered 20% of the total number of registered domains. 1,500 domains were registered in the new address space, showing a great interest for the registration of these highly available domains. Somewhat less than 5 months are left for registrants of current .yu domains to use their right and register the same .rs domain name.

After September 10th, 2008, domains booked during the transition period will become available for registration to all interested parties. From the total number of registered domains, approximately 25% are domains registered during transition by registrants of existing .yu domains, whereas the rest are brand new Intеrnеt domains. There are approximately 40,000 old .yu domains, about half being active, which can be used at least until September 30th, 2009.

RNIDS has also established a Transition Commission, which started handling appeals for the registration of domains during transition in cases when the registrant of a .yu domain is not an active legal person any longer. The process of registering .rs domains is performed by registrars. There are 34 registrars at the moment.
