Is Registering A Domain Name Within The Ex-soviet Top-level Domain .su Still Possible?

Although there isn’t a current political entity corresponding to the .su (Soviet Union) domain, registering a second-level domain name within .su is still possible. The administrative management of this “country”-code top-level domain is organized in the framework of the Foundation for Internet Development (FID) and specifically its .SU Registry Committee. According to reports of the institution, in spite of the attempts to progressively curb the use of .su domain, official statistics show that since 1994 the number of domain names registered in the .su domain has increased nearly tenfold, and by May 2002 exceeded the 28,000 level. The concept of the users’ right to free choice is seen as a basic market value and therefore taken into consideration in the first place.
