A .rs domain name is a domain name suffix that represents "Republic of Serbia."
A .rs domain name can be registered by anyone; however, it must share the same root name as its registrant's place of residence or business. This applies to individuals and commercial entities. For businesses that do not have a physical address within the Republic of Serbia, it is possible to provide a local contact instead who can confirm the registrant's name and address. This contact person does not necessarily need to be based in the .rs TLD zone.
The .rs domain name is regulated by the Serbian Network Information Center (RNIDS), which is responsible for all top-level domains in Serbia. It also ensures that all .rs domain names abide by Serbian Network Information Policy. This means that all .rs domains must be registered by companies or individuals within the Republic of Serbia.
