Websites using the .yu domain extension will cease to be available online from
The extension - assigned to the former Republic of Yugoslavia - has been
replaced by .rs (for Serbia) and .me (for Montenegro).
Icann - which oversees the assigning of top-level domain names - allowed extra
time for sites to make the transition before removing the .yu extension.
It is thought up to 4,000 websites have still not migrated to a new domain.
However, the Serbian National Register of Internet Domain Names has requested a
postponement of several months; The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and
Numbers (Icann) is meeting to consider the request.
