The latest UK geographic generic top level domains have recently launched, with .wales and .cymru accepting registrations from midday on St David’s Day.
Nominet, the registry behind .wales and .cymru announced that over 5,000 of the new TLDs were sold in the first 24 hours of general availability, with more than 1,000 being bought within the first hour of launch.
Russell Haworth, CEO, Nominet commented: “It’s been fantastic to be part of bringing .cymru and .wales to life. These new domains are all part of offering more choices after the dot to anyone who wants to make the web more Welsh.”
Other UK-related gTLDs to have already launched include .scot and .london.
Clients who have an interest in the new spaces should contact their usual account manager.
