Nominet consults on new top level domain names for Wales

dot-wales-cymru-domain-nameNominet, 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.
