Nominet, the UK’s Internet domain name registry has launched a public consultation on proposals for the new internet domains for Wales; .cymru and .wales.
The consultation sets out a range of proposals for how the new domains should be launched and managed. Feedback is being sought on a number of areas including:
- Whether there should be any link between .wales and .cymru domain names and if so, how such a connection might operate.
- If registrations should be open to all or restricted to only those with a Welsh address.
- The approach to managing domain names in Welsh.
- Proposals for the launch of the new domain name spaces, including the approach to trade marks and other rights.
The full consultation document is available at www.domainforwales.org.uk/content/have-your-say. The consultation closes on 28 February 2013.
