.swiss domain registration

The.swiss extension has been proposed to create an online platform for the Swiss community defined as legal persons and citizens, as well as organisations, companies, and institutions in Switzerland.

The new .swiss generic domain has also been proposed to give a strong sense of community and identity.

.swiss Sunrise Rules

The Sunrise of .swiss domain is a limited period of time during which holders of trademarks may preregister names that are the same or similar to their trademark in a privileged way and at an additional cost before it is sold to the public.

To participate in the Sunrise phase of the .swissdomain, the trademark must be validated by a third party designated by ICANN: the Trademark Clearinghouse (TMCH).
Dominiando is an official TMCH agent and can, therefore, carry out brand validation procedures of the trademark on your behalf.

This validation is mandatory to participate in the Sunrise of all new domains and the same validation can be reused for registration during the Sunrise periods of all extensions that allow it.

More than one request for the same .swiss domain name will be settled by an auction between the contenders, trademark holders.
