From today, anyone can apply for .cymru and .wales domain names. So if you’re proud about being Welsh, or the Welsh connection is important to your business, now you can celebrate that by giving your website a name that ends in .cymru or .wales. If more than one person wants to register a domain, an auction will determine who will win the registration.
The domains available will also include a list of popular terms that carry a £50 reserve price plus application and registration fees. So from the 29th, for those looking to create a buzz.wales, everything from the hills.wales to thevalleys.wales is up for grabs.
From 1 March, all .cymru and .wales domain names will be offered on a first come, first served basis.
The new .cymru and .wales domains have already started going live with the Welsh Assembly being the first to switch on its new domains. Strong backing has come from many organisations, including the Welsh government, S4C, Sport Wales, the Federation of Small Businesses Wales, the Scarlets rugby team, the Welsh Rugby Union, the Millennium Stadium, the Arts Council for Wales, Golwg360, Bloc, Gwalia, Atlantic PLC, Orchard and Portmeirion.
