I'm setting up custom domain for tlog and already have domain name like <business-name>.msk.ru

Depending on official Tumblr help in case of third+ domain name I should use CNAME DNS record, not A. But it seems like I'm not so good in DNS related things. So... does .msk.ru domains counts as third level or not?

is msk your business name or is msk.ru a TLD? – Liam Sorsby Mar 13 '14 at 11:37
@LiamSorsby, .msk.ru is a TLD as far as I know. – khannz Mar 13 '14 at 12:29
Also I resolved my issue, planning to close question as soon as I be able. – khannz Mar 13 '14 at 12:35

After global DNS was finally updated I could use my Tumblr Custom Domain and now I can be sure that .msk.ru is a TLD.
