Where can I register a .RU domain and pay with bitcoins?

(There are several services offering the registration of "international" domains and accepting bitcoin payments, but what about .RU domain?)

  • @ripper: No, this is a specific question, and it costed me substantial effort to find the anser to this specific question: most of the known services do not offer .RU registration. So I had to check them one by one, find for each one the list of domains that are available, and look for .RU there. By posting this question and answer, I save the time and work of other people with the same need as mine. – imz -- Ivan Zakharyaschev Mar 20 '12 at 13:36
  • You can edit the answer to the other generic question to pinpoint the RU domains ... essentially the two questions are so alike, they should just be one question. – ripper234 Mar 20 '12 at 15:11
  • @ripper234: no, this won't be a usable solution, because it would just dump the huge amount of information into the answer which a person looking just for .RU domain registration will have to look through, and this won't save the effort for him/her. – imz -- Ivan Zakharyaschev Mar 20 '12 at 15:38

There is a list of domain registration services at https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Trade#Domain_Name_and_DNS_Hosting. Among them, I could find .RU registration only at:


Frank Domains has entirely integrated its payment system with Bitcoins. They sell all TLD's and also a substantial number of ccTLD's, including .ru (http://www.frankdomains.com/.ru).

Its also relatively cheap for only 1.49BTC

There are other alternatives, but I prefer Frank Domains due to their extra security options.
