- Registrants of .yu domains will have their domain name reserved
in .rs space (eg. eunet.yu -> eunet.rs)

in both .co.rs and .rs space (eg. firma.co.yu -> firma.co.rs and
firma.rs)

firma.rs)
- Registrants of .edu.yu domains will have their domain name reserved
in both .edu.rs and .rs space (eg. firma.edu.yu -> firma.edu.rs and

In case of same domain names being registered in .yu, .co.yu, .org.yu,

a first come first serve basis.

After the initial six months, reservations will be cancelled and
