Ministerial Seal of Approval for .wales

Since the new domains for Wales launched in 2014, the Welsh Government were among the first to get behind this new online opportunity and led the way for the public sector, businesses and tourism in Wales in switching to their new domains: www.gov.wales and www.llyw.cymru.

And, it’s not just the Government’s own websites, public bodies across the board are switching over to the domains with .wales hosting online portals in tourism, culture, food, health and business sectors, helping promote Wales within Wales and globally in an increasingly online world

Recognising the significance of the Welsh domains, Welsh Government Cabinet Secretary for Economy and Infrastructure, Ken Skates AM said, “Nominet have done a fantastic job with the .wales .cymru domain names. We’ve seen so many business adapt their website to .cymru .wales including the Welsh Government.

“What’s noticeable in the 21st century is that we go both global and local in our outlook and offering .wales as a domain name offers the opportunity to be able to promote something distinctive on a global platform.”
