Domain Names Magazine is the only official, Russian periodical covering the Internet's address system, and modern Internet technologies. Key topics include the current state and perspectives of DNS and secondary domain name market, technical and administrative management of the Internet, Internet security, and web technologies. The magazine is produced by RU-CENTER, Russia's largest domain name registrar.[1] It is sold in RU-CENTER offices and distributed at key Russian Internet events. It is also sent to RU-CENTER partners and Russian governmental bodies.

The first issue of the magazine was published in 2006. Since then, the magazine has been published twice a year, with each issue running about 10,000 copies.[2] By 2009, the publication was well known on the market, at which point it was officially registered as a periodical. In 2011, the magazine was translated into English for the first time, and was distributed at ICANN 40 in San Francisco. The English edition gave a comprehensive picture of the Russian domain market, and covered IDN related issues and cybercrime prevention, among other things.[3] It received positive feedback from the ICANN community.[4]
