Nominet announces the launch of .cymru and .wales New gTLDs

ICANN has formally signed a contract giving domain addresses ending in .cymru and .wales the go-ahead. The agreement means that businesses and consumers can acquire a .cymru or .wales domain name allowing them to demonstrate their Welsh identity, language and culture online.


A phased launch plan will begin 1st September and allow those with a registered trade mark to benefit from first registrations in September of this year closely followed by businesses and organisations who can prove interests and use of a brand name in Wales even if they don’t have a trademark. The final phase will see the addresses open up to everybody from March 1st 2015.
