Nominet is consulting on our proposals for the new internet domains for Wales. The plans for .cymru and .wales domains have huge potential to provide significant cultural, economic and social benefits in Wales.
Having submitted our applications for .cymru and .wales earlier this year, we are now seeking views to ensure that the new top level domains meet the needs of a wide range of stakeholders in Wales and beyond. The consultation seeks feedback on a number of areas including:
- Whether there should be any link between the .cymru and .wales domain names and if so, how such a connection might operate.
- Whether there should be any restrictions on who can register a .cymru or .wales domain.
- The approach to managing domain names in Welsh.
- Proposals for the launch of the new domain name spaces, including the approach to trade marks and other rights.
Individuals, organisations and businesses in Wales are urged to take the opportunity to shape and develop Wales’ online identity for the future.
You can take part by completing our online consultation or downloading a copy of the document and sending us your views by email. You can also send us your comments by post to the address in the document.
Nominet will be holding the domain for Wales webinar on Tuesday 29 January. It is a great opportunity for you to learn more about our proposals for the new domains and ask any questions you may have.
The consultation closes on Thursday 28th February.
