Google.su[edit]

has anybody tried Google.su it does not show a normal google homepage, but a tiled picture of a brick/sand???? is there any reasons for this — Preceding unsigned comment added by 87.114.177.169 (talk) 18:36, 19 June 2011 (UTC)

It doesn't resolve at all here at the moment. --66.102.83.61 (talk) 20:38, 11 February 2012 (UTC)

What was the first Soviet/Russian website?[edit]

Does anyone know?

Probably, it was http://www.1-9-9-4.ru/ Alik Kirillovich (talk)

Image copyright problem with Image:Rucenter.gif[edit]

The image Image:Rucenter.gif is used in this article under a claim of fair use, but it does not have an adequate explanation for why it meets the requirements for such images when used here. In particular, for each page the image is used on, it must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Please check

  • That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's description page for the use in this article.
  • That this article is linked to from the image description page.

Outdated Reference[edit]

[3] is no longer on yahoo.com, nor is it on web.archive.org --156.34.242.24 (talk) 17:18, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for pointing this out. The same piece is on a number of other news sites, so I've replaced the link with one that works. --Zundark (talk) 17:41, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

Notable Websites[edit]

Can anyone please tell me some examples of .su? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 88.104.232.64 (talk) 11:45, 15 August 2009 (UTC)

For example, http://www.sai.msu.su is the website of Sternberg Astronomical Institute. --Zundark (talk) 11:54, 15 August 2009 (UTC)
malako.su is the main website of Malako, which "is arguably Minsk's hippest spot" (well, people can argue about this). Arguable hipness aside, and rather more interestingly, it doesn't show any nostalgia for the Soviet Union, which it surely postdates. -- Hoary (talk) 13:34, 21 September 2011 (UTC)
uon.su is a URL redirection for The University of Nottingham's Students' Union. 2A01:388:211:110:0:0:1:2C (talk) 13:04, 19 May 2013 (UTC)

actual/intended use (infobox)[edit]

In the infobox, this page lists:

Intended use Entities from the post-Soviet states
Actual use Entities from the post-Soviet states

Is this accurate, or has .su merely become an overlay of .ru? I don't see .lv, .lt and .ee sites falling all over each other in their haste to register .su (as all three are now .eu provinces), for instance. --66.102.83.61 (talk) 20:43, 11 February 2012 (UTC)

Translation[edit]

Since I stumbled on the page and saw that there is more info in Polish Wikipedia that this page may use. Since Polish is my native language, I took the liberty of translating it and incorporating it into this page. It's my first attempt at translating a Wikipedia page, and my English is not perfect, so I would appreciate some kind of proof-reading and corrections. I left all the reference links untouched with the way they are in the Polish Wikipedia, so most of them are in Polish or Russian. I also kept the original retrieve dates and avoided adding additional parameters (except language one and removing empty ones). I also found that one link is dead and I couldn't verify the name of the "inventor" of the .su domain, Petri Ojala. I'm not sure if his name is Petri Ojala or Petri Ojal and "Olaja" is just an inflexion. If you have any questions about the translation or need help translating something related to the article, send me a message. —Faalagorn/ 23:51, 28 August 2013 (UTC)
