Suspending and Deleting .RU, .SU .РФ Domains

Suspending Domain Name due to Non-Payment

If the registration renewal fee for .RU, .РФ and .SU is not paid before the service expiry date, the service will be suspended on a day specified in paid-till field in the Whois service. If scheduled date of suspension falls on a weekend or a public holiday, the domain suspension will take place on a first business day after the weekend or a public holiday.

After the domain gets suspended all http-requests to this domain will be redirected to the "domain suspended" webpage. Registrants of .RU and .РФ domains wishing to refuse from redirection to this page will be required to submit a request in arbitrary form to support@nic.ru before the expiry of domain name registration.

Within 30 days upon service expiration (within priority renewal period) the Registrant of a .RU, .РФ or .SU domain will still be able to pay the service renewal fee.

If the fee is paid, the service delivery will continue.

If the fee is paid on the last day of the priority renewal period, RU-CENTER cannot guarantee successful renewal.

Deleting .RU, .SU and .РФ Domain Names from the Registry due to Non-Payment

If the domain registration renewal is not paid for within 30 days after the registration expiry date (within priority renewal period), the registration is cancelled (the domain is released).

Scheduled Domain Release Date starts to be displayed in the free-date field of the domain information (RU-CENTER's Whois service) after the registration term ends.

RU-CENTER can delete a .SU domain anytime after the scheduled domain release date (free-date). Otherwise, domains are automatically deleted by the SU domain Technical Center.

Registration of .RU and .РФ domains cannot be canceled during the priority renewal period.

Date of domain deletion by the Technical Center

Technical Center deletes .RU, .РФ and .SU domains on the scheduled domain release date (free-date).

Technical Center will delete .RU, .РФ and .SU domains on the second business day after the scheduled domain release date, if the scheduled domain release date happens on weekend or a day after the weekend.

The domain deletion procedure in the Technical Center starts:

  • at 05:00 p.m. (MSK) for .RU and .РФ domains;
  • at 07:30 p.m. (MSK) for .SU domains.
