1. INTRODUCTORY NOTES

This document defines the rules and regulations for Internet domain assignment the ISO 3166 country code top level domain (ccTLD) of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (YU).

2. REGULATIONS FOR DOMAIN ASSIGNMENT

Domain assignment and domain registration in the YU TLD table are FREE OF CHARGE AT ALL CONDITIONS, with the following restrictions:

  • Only companies and organizations located in Yugoslavia are eligible to apply for a domain name.
  • Individuals are not eligible to obtain a domain name.
  • Only ONE domain per one registrant is allowed.
  • Domain name is a public resource, registered to a company or an organization (registrant) stated in the part 2 of the domain application form. Once registered, a domain name can't be taken over by another party. The domain name can't be sold or leased to a third party.

Domain name registration for foreign companies and organisations are allowed if and only if they have official representatives located in Yugoslavia. In such cases, please provide the address of the representative office instead of real company address in the registration form. Foreign companies and organisations without local representative offices are NOT ELIGIBLE to apply.

Domain name registrant must meet the following technical requirements before submitting a domain name request:

  • At least 2 (two) fully operational domain name servers (DNS), configured for the requested domain name.
  • SThe domain name servers may be located anywhere on the Internet, but they must be connected permanently (7x24).
  • SThe domain name servers must be configured properly.

Should the registrant fail to meet the mentioned technical requirements, the request will be refused. In such a case the registrant will be advised on further steps.

3. DOMAIN NAMING CONVENTIONS

According to the recent recommendations, the YU ccTLD is divided into the following second-level domains: AC.YU, CO.YU, ORG.YU and EDU.YU.

  • If the registrant is an academic organization (e.g. university, institute), registered at the Ministry of Science and Technology of Serbia, Montenegro or the Federal Ministry of Science and Environment, it will be registered in the "academical" domain (AC.YU).
  • If the registrant is an educational organization (primary school, high school, special status school, registered with the Ministry of Education of Serbia or Montenegro) or a company, whose primary orientation is education and training, it may apply for the "education" domain (EDU.YU).
  • If the registrant is a corporation (private, mixed, public, social), registered according to the national Corporate Law, it will be registered in the "corporative" domain (CO.YU).
  • If the registrant is an independent organization (professional, political, non-political, independent etc.), registered according to the appropriate national laws (i.e. it has the legal right to act on the area of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia) it will be registered in the domain reserved for "organizations" (ORG.YU). This domain can be also suitable for cultural organizations, like museums, theaters etc.
  • Governmental institutions of Federal Republic of Yugoslavia as well as appropriate institutions of its Republics (Serbia and Montenegro) will be registered under separate subdomains of YU ccTLD.
  • National institutions and agencies with special status, directly controlled by the Federal government (so-called: "Savezni zavodi") may also apply for the registration directly under the TLD of Yugoslavia (YU).

Domain names can be arbitary character strings, with minimum length 1 and maximum length 30 characters. Domain names use Latin-1 (USA) character set and may contain letters (A-Z), digits (0-9) and dashes (-). The domain name must not begin nor end with a dash. Domain names are case insensitive.
