Proposed domain extensions for Wales
06 February 2013
Large parts of the UK already have their own domain extensions whether it be Jersey (.je), Guernsey (.gg), Isle of Man (.im), yet Wales, with its own language, doesn't. After years of discussion, and various failed bids to secure funding from the Welsh government, Nominet are in the process of submitting an application to secure .cymru and .wales extensions with ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, which is responsible for evaluating all TLD claims. Nominet are the body which controls .uk domain names including .co.uk, org.uk and .me.uk.
