Since January 11, 2016, every public or private organization with a headquarters and an actual administrative site in Switzerland can register a .swiss domain name. Requests can now be made for any type of name, but individuals cannot yet reserve a domain name with the .swiss extension.

The .swiss domain highlights Swiss values

The success of this extension is owed to the benefits it offers Swiss companies, associations and foundations:

  • It underlines the globally recognized values of the Swiss brand, such as precision, innovation, security, and quality
  • It clearly indicates the source and roots of your organization, both in Switzerland and on an international scale
