MOSCOW

Population: 12.4 Million

Moscow is best known for its iconic architecture like Red Square, the Kremlin and St. Basil’s Cathedral, but beyond these amazing buildings lies a world if interest.

As the most populous city in Europe, Moscow has unique challenges as it enters the digital age. To address this, Moscow has innovated in securing both .moscow and .mосква TLDs. This approach means that Moscow residents are supported with options in both English and Cyrillic for city TLD domain names. This approach has been wildly successful as both of these city TLDs have seen significant registration and usage, benefiting the people of Moscow as they move into the digital era
