About .RU Domain Names
The .RU country-code top-level domain name (ccTLD) is an extension that represents Russia. For companies that conduct business in Russia and individuals who want to reach the growing number of Internet users there, .RU domain names are a good investment. Registering a .RU domain name gives you regional recognition and an easy-to-manage Web presence.
Anyone can register a .RU domain.
If the registrant or admin contact is an organization/company located in Russia, they have to submit their taxpayer's identification number (10-digit number), Company registration number (9-digit number), and Registrant name.
Additionally, anyone who registers a .RU domain must include their birthdate (YYYY-MM-DD), and the passport number, date and location.
