.ru (Russia) Registered Domain Names List Download / .ru zone file

.ru is the Latin alphabet Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for the Russian Federation introduced on April 7, 1994. The Russian alphabet internationalized country code is .рф.


The control of .ru is assigned to the Coordination Center for TLD RU (CC for TLD RU), the current official registry. On January 1, 2005, the former registry Russian Institute for Public Networks (RIPN) has fully stopped to provide operations for registrations directly under .ru but still carries out registry operations for the third-level domain names under .com.ru, .net.ru, .org.ru and .pp.ru.

The company RELCOM also proposes third-level registrations beneath various second-level domains such as .msk.ru (Moscow), while Macomnet Telcom proposes third-level registrations beneath .int.ru simultaneously.

RU-CENTER is one of the accredited registrars in .ru and also handles registration services for .su, the top-level domain of the Soviet Union, which was supposedly going to be phased out given the non-existence of the country it represents, but nevertheless has been accepting new registrations along with .ru; the legal status and ownership of .su is being contested by the ICANN (Russian Government), and several Russian commercial entities.

The national domain in Russia is developing rapidly according to self-regulatory principles. In 1993, an informal union, a RU Top-level Domain Coordination group including the leading RussianInternet providers as well as scientific and educational networks entrusted RIPN with RU domain administration.

In 1998, RIPN and RU top-level domain Coordination group established a domain registering association. Subsequently, in 2000, a new system of domain names registration in RU top-level domain was introduced. It was a distributed system of second-level domain name registration in RU top-level domain through accredited Registrars. The accredited registrars provide domain name registration and support services based on the “first come, first served” principle to the end-users so far.


RIPN became one of four co-founders of the Coordination Center for TLD RU but continued to support centralized technical aspect of the national domain operation. All organizational and administrative functions were handed over to the Coordination Center for TLD RU. To preserve the historical continuity, one of the Coordination center’s committees was established on the basis of RU top-level domain Coordination group.

The Coordination Center for TLD RU develops domain names registration rules in RU top-level domain, registrars accreditation procedure and promoting perspective projects that involve Russian national domain growth. Whereas, the RIPN secures national domain RU technical base functioning and supports the DNS.

The new distributed registration system was tested in 2001 and implemented in 2005.
