Sofia / Geneva / Barcelona, April 2, 2014. Today at 13:00 UTC is the start of the General Availability (GA) phase for the two Cyrillic-script TLDs .САЙТ and .ОНЛАЙН. At this point anyone can register domain names in Cyrillic script ending in .САЙТ and .ОНЛАЙН. Registered domain names go live within minutes.
The two TLD strings have the same pronunciation and meaning as the English words “site” and “online”, respectively. Their purpose is to serve Internet users in countries where the Cyrillic script is used, including the fast-growing markets in Eastern Europe and Asia. Examples of domains ending in .САЙТ and .ОНЛАЙН: зустріч.сайт, поэзия.онлайн, фильмы.онлайн
In the words of Iliya Bazlyankov, Chair of CORE’s Executive Committee: “Access to content in the user’s own language is key for the broad-based development of the Internet. We are pleased to be able to support Cyrillic-script users by offering domain names matching their needs and their language”.
Time flies… our babies .САЙТ and .ОНЛАЙН grew, now they walk and begin to enjoy the real life! Their power increases and nothing can resist them – their magical power transform letters, sounds of animals… everything changes… It is time for us to change! Start to appreciate what makes us special, what makes us special from all others – our language! From now on you can begin to create your piece of the Internet in your own language registering a name of your website using domains .САЙТ and .ОНЛАЙН!
