Unique Russian project, scheduled for the implementation during the New gTLD Program. The domain introduction will unite the geographic areas of the great Russian river Volga, covering the territory of the middle and lower Volga. In the long run .VOLGA should become an additional boost for the regional business and Internet technologies development. As well as .MOSCOW and .МОСКВА, .VOLGA project will help to get a useful experience in the sphere of introduction of Russian geographical TLDs. This experience could be then expanded to other local cities and regions, interested in getting their own top-level domain. Such domains could appear during the second New gTLD application round that will start in approximately seven years.
