New Cyrillic domain is about to shine on the domain market. The Bulgarian Ministry of Transport, Information Technology and Communications (MTITC) announced that on the last meeting in Los Angeles ICANN approved the national Bulgarian IDN .бг (transl. bg). Congratulations, Bulgarians!
The process lasted 5 years, starting in 2009, receiving an rejection in 2010 explaining that the similarity with the Latin domain of Brasilia .br is almost 80%, going trough a lot of meetings and discussions, coming to the positive response today
So, what to expect now?
It has to be established the registry for the names of the websites, using the new top-level-domain. From the MTITC was announced that next week it will be organized a meeting between representatives of the government, the business, NGOs and academic institutions, where it will be decided which local company will be carry on the new Bulgarian Cyrillic Domain.
Owning a Cyrillic domain of your own country shows your national identity.
We are happy that our “Cyrillic family” is growing. The more, the better!
Good luck, .бг!
