.SWISS domain name .SWISS domain name - Switzerland

The .SWISS domain extension has strict registration requirements plus ongoing monitoring of registrants to ensure the stability of the .SWISS domain. Registration of a .SWISS domain name is limited to organisations with a Swiss Enterprise ID (UID/IDE/IDI). Legal entities have to be based in Switzerland and be able to show a connection with the country. The conditions for registering a .SWISS domain name are exacting. Once application has been accepted, your .SWISS domain name will be checked regularly for noncompliance. If in the future noncompliance is discovered, the domain name will be suspended. The .SWISS registry wants to ensure that the .SWISS domain will remain a secure, trustworthy and genuine online space.

Registration requirements include a 20 day public assessment, and provision of a declaration of intended use. It all sounds pretty strict, but for good reason. The .SWISS domain will be an online space that’s protected and secure. This is excellent news for users who can be sure that they're dealing with a genuine business and that it's safe to share personal information.

Local domains like .SWISS are a powerful way to boost your visibility and ranking in local search result pages. Your .SWISS domain name demonstrates not only your location, but your support for the local economy. Local users appreciate this endorsement and they are more inclined to trust your site and purchase your products and services. Reduced shipping costs and customer support in the appropriate time zone are also strong factors. Your .SWISS website will therefore, rank highly in local search results. 

Along with your .SWISS domain name, you'll also benefit from a free Alpha SSL certificate, Classic DNS to keep your website running efficiently, and a personalised email address. 

The .SWISS domain extension was launched in 2015. It's in addition to the .CH country code domain extension for Switzerland, which has more relaxed registration requirements.

If you're in any doubt about what's required, please don't hesitate to contact us and we can talk you through the requirements.
