if (like me) you ever wondered whatever happend to the top-level domains of former eastern bloc states:
.dd (east germany): withdrawn in 1990, never used "on the net", just in university networks
.su (soviet union): still in use, even though it probably shouldn't be, ~117.000 domains
.yu (yugoslavia): deleted in 2010, ~4000 domains vanished
.cs (czechoslovakia): deleted in 1995, 114 domains vanished

Ya I was just going to reply that. But they are a little pricey compared to other TLD's and there is lots of paperwork including sending a copy of your ID off to someone in russia.

I found them for about 15 EUR per year, not that picy

And yes, both .ru and .su wants your ID
