Click on the subject below to open the dropdown for more information.

A .su domain name registration is realtime and requires no specific additional data outside of the regular contact details for the owner, administrative and technical contact.
For organizations incorporated in the Russian Federation the following additional parameters are required:
Taxpayer identification number
Territory-linked taxpayer number

Do note the requirement for the registrant needing to include the company type if it is a company.
You have to arrange the complete transfer with Nic.Ru yourself. Therefore you will need our registrar id, which is: 16824/NIC-REG
If the transfer has been completed successfully please request the domain Transfer in RCP. It will then be added to your account within a few hours automatically.
Please note: If the domain has not been transferred successfully within 14 days, the transfer request will be cancelled.
