The bilateral decision

The decision about the termination of delegation of a domain zone .yu is accepted the Serbian national registrar of Internet domains (RNIDS). RNIDS, in turn, has informed on it after the decision of corporation ICANN.

Carrying over of servers of a zone .yu in a new zone .rs — is accepted in May, 2009. In a zone .yu are still registered about 4,000 domains. In zone .rs is already registered over 52,000 domain names.

Forever .su!

It was initially supposed, that the domain zone. yu will cease to exist on September, 30th, 2009. However representatives of RNIDS have asked about a delay and date is postponed for March, 30th, 2010.
