.swiss domain names coming soon?


The Swiss Confederation's application for the creation of a new top level domain was signed in 2012 by Eveline Widmer-Schlumpf. According to OFCOM's newsletter, Switzerland's application will be examined by ICANN before summer 2013.

If accepted,".swiss" domains could be created in 2014, DETEC (Federal Department of the Environment, Transport, Energy and Communications) intends with this new extension to "defend the country's interests" with the objective of limiting the use of the future top level domain (TLD)".swiss" on the condition that "a real anchoring with Switzerland is established".
