The coordination center of national domain of network the Internet (KTS) is going to ban re-registration of domains “forever” blocked in Russia sites. KC has already prepared appropriate amendments to the rules of registration of domain names .EN .Of the Russian Federation.

After the entry into force on 1 may 2015 extended version of the anti-piracy law on 1 may 2016, the Moscow city court handed down 26 decisions on “eternal” blocking domains.
