Domain name disputes

There is no local administrative dispute resolution policy available for the domain name disputes resolution under .RU due to low costs of the Court litigation in Russia. Nevertheless, Coordination Center for TLD RU is planning to undertake research involving Russian and international experts in this field in order to ensure effectiveness of domain disputes resolution.

We would like to draw your attentoin to the fact, that registrars of domain names under .RU are not authorized to execute preliminary checks of the applications for domain names for their correspondence to the intellectual property objects under Russian law. Responsibility for registration and usage of the domain name lays completely on the entity (or individual), which has registered domain name.

Information on domain name holder is publicly available through Whois service.

Complete information on domain name holder could be achieved from registrars upon receipt of official request from competent authorities.
You may find contact information on registrars using their IDs indicated in the registrar field of Whois service response. Click this ID or type it into the query window to achieve registrar's contact information.

In case of Court litigation we recommend you to use terminology, defined in our Rules for domain name registration; and to appeal for "suspension" of domain name (in order to block domain name transfers).
