During the Sunrise Phase, trademark rights holders may register their domain names, provided that the term applied for is in the TMCH, with multiple applications for the same domain resulting in an auction.

Please note that an acceptable trademark should be one used only in relation to such goods, products, work, and/or services that are consistent with the values of the .ДЕТИ gTLD (for children-friendly interactive environments): for example, a domain registered under Sunrise may be refused if a trademark is registered or used only under the NCL 33 and/or 34 class, or a trademark is registered or used only in relation to alcoholic beverages (NCL class 32, if soft drinks are excluded from the list of goods and/or services).

A Limited Registration/Step One phase will follow, allowing for registration of domain names by holders of trademarks registered in Russia.

During the Limited Registration/Step Two phase, domains may be registered for media and internet projects.

A Premium Registration/Landrush phase will allow for registration of domain names by all at a premium price and domains will finally be available to all on a first-come, first-served basis under General Availability.

Domains must be registered using the characters of the Russian alphabet only and are available for periods of from 1 to 10 years.
