I am located in the USA and am interested in registering a .ru domain. I am having some trouble finding a good domain registration site -- light research on 101domain turns up more than a handful of poor/scammy reviews and I haven't found a single review for http://nic.ru though I like the looks of it (at least, more than 101domain).

If anyone knows of a good domain registration site for .ru domains or has any insight into finding such a site, any help would be much appreciated.

Thank you,

    Update: I decided to go ahead and register "meryn.ru" with nic.ru. First off, it is very helpful to me as a non-Russian speaker to have the option to view the website in English instead of relying on Google translate. Compared to a regular domain buying experience, it is a bit more involved. Proof of identification (specifically, passport) is required. However, it went much more smoothly than expected. I was happy to see that the Name Servers resolved in just a few hours. Nic.ru --> Thumbs up
