Today, March 26th 2008, is the live launch date for first-come first-served .asia domain names.

 

Already more than 500,000 .asia domain names have been registered in the first three phases. If you have not yet ordered your .asia domain name, or require more information, please visit www.safenames.net and login to your account to place an order.

 

To register any .asia domain name, you are required to provide an Asian-based Address as your Administrative Contact. If you cannot supply this information, Safenames can offer its “Local Asia Contact” service at a greatly reduced rate of only $100, allowing you to secure the domain name you want. Registering a domain name during this period costs $50 for 2 years.

Safenames are pleased to announce opening a new local contact service in Serbia & Montenegro, allowing all clients to register any domain name ending in either .rs or .co.rs (provided the .co.yu domain name is not already registered.)

 

For a limited time only, Safenames are offering a discounted local contact fee of just $150, for all .rs and .co.rs domain names.

Due to recent political changes in Serbia, a new domain extension has been created (.rs) to replace the old domain extension .co.yu (Yugoslavia).

 

Any citizen of Serbia can register one or more .rs or .in.rs domain names for their personal use. Any foreign citizen can register one or more .rs or .in.rs domain names for their personal use. However, the administrative contact for the domain names must be a person residing in, or an organization registered in Serbia.

 

Organizations registered in Serbia can register one or more .co.rs, .org.rs, .edu.rs or .rs domains:

  • Any registered organization can register .rs domains
  • Commercial (for-profit) organizations can register .co.rs domains
  • Educational organizations can register .edu.rs or .co.rs domains
  • All other non-commercial organizations can register .org.rs domains

Foreign organizations can register one or more .co.rs, .org.rs, .edu.rs or .rs domains. The administrative contact for those domains has to be a person residing in, or an organization registered in Serbia. If the domain in question is .co.rs, .org.rs, or .edu.rs, the registrant must submit proof of registration which shows the adequate type of organization for the domain (commercial, educational or other).
