.ovk Domain Name

.ovk domain names are exclusively for businesses in the Russian Federation. They can be used by anyone who has a registered business in Russia.

Tips to choose an ideal .ovk Domain Name:

When choosing a domain name, it's important to think about how it will represent your business. The following tips can be helpful when choosing a .ovk domain name:

Niche - When selecting a domain name, it's important to consider your target audience. A .ovk domain name can help you to specifically target Russian businesses.

Brandable - A brandable domain name is one that can be easily remembered and is easy to spell. It's also important to make sure that the domain name isn't already taken.

Short - A short domain name is easier to remember and type in.

Why choose a .ovk Domain Name?

There are several reasons why you might want to register a .ovk domain name for your business. Here are some of the benefits:

Exclusively for Russian businesses - Only businesses registered in Russia can use a .ovk domain name.

Convenient - A .ovk domain name can help your customers quickly and easily find you online.

Easy to remember - if your business is already known by a short, easy-to-spell domain name, then adding a .ovk domain is an ideal way to connect with more customers.

What's the Difference Between .com. and .ovk ?

A .com. domain name is a generic top-level domain (gTLD) name, while .ovk is a country code top-level domain (ccTLD). A ccTLD such as .co.uk or .au indicates that the domain name is specific to a certain country or region.

Are there any restrictions when registering a .ovk Domain Name?

Yes, there are some restrictions when registering a .ovk domain name. The domain name must be registered in the name of a business registered in Russia. Additionally, the registrant must have a valid mailing address in Russia.

Is .ovk a community-based domain name?

No, .ovk is not a community-based domain name. It is exclusively for businesses registered in Russia.

Is it possible to transfer my current website from another domain name extension to .ovk ?

No, it isn't currently possible to transfer a website from another domain name extension into .ovk. This is because Russia's Domain Name Registration Policy requires that the registrant must be a legal entity registered in the Russian Federation. A generic top-level domain (gTLD) such as .com. doesn't require a business to be registered in Russia, so your current website cannot be transferred to a .ovk domain name if it was originally registered using a gTLD such as .com or .net

What Documents Do You Need to Register a .ovk Domain Name?

In order to register a .ovk domain name, you will need to provide the following documents:

- Proof of business registration in Russia

- Copy of valid Russian identity document for the registrant

- Valid Russian mailing address for the registrant

How Much Does a .ovk Domain Name Cost?

The cost of a .ovk domain name will vary depending on the length of the domain name and how long you want it to be registered for. This said, the average cost of a .ovk domain name is $30 USD/year.
