The new .swiss internet domain is available to the Swiss community since September 2015. For this purpose, the Confederation has signed a contract with ICANN (the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers), the corporation which manages internet addresses.
Following its application submitted in 2012, the Confederation has acquired the operation of the .swiss domain. OFCOM has been charged with putting in place the entire management system for this extension. The principles are laid down in the new Ordinance on Internet Domains (OID) which entered into force on 1 January 2015. The first applications to register a .swiss domain name were submitted in September 2015. Interested parties will find a wealth of information about the new .swiss domain, particularly in relation to registration conditions and the registration procedure, on the internet sites
