Cyrillic domain[edit]

In November 2012, MARnet announced that the agency is planning to introduce a national Cyrillic domain. Additionally, the agency started with the process of gathering proposals from the Macedonian citizens about the form of the domain which will be applied for official registration. The call started on 19 November 2012 and it ends on 3 December 2012. The Cyrillic domain needs to contain the letters of the country's name.[1][2] The form is still open and everybody can apply for an example. On December 3, MarNet has chosen six proposals (.мкд, .мак, .македонија, .рмкд, .рм and .рмак). In this second phase of the process, the Macedonian citizens can vote for the final Macedonian Cyrillic domain. The winning proposal will be officially announced in January 2013.

Final results[edit]

In the final phase of choosing the national Cyrillic domain, there were six domains. During the voting period 2,288 votes have been registered and the final results were announced on the official MARnet website.
