Why Choose a .swiss Domain Name ?

.swiss domain .SWISS Domain Registration (.swiss):

Global domains such as .com are the most commonly seen around the Internet, however here at Nominate we wish to highlight the advantages of international domains and .swiss domains for both personal and professional use.

Making the Right Choice

With the hundreds of extensions and combinations made available from the advent of international domains .swiss domains reinforces your presence in swiss, but it doesn't stop there. When you have the perfect name in mind, it isn't easy to change. Usually you'll end up adding pointless hyphens or numbers just to get as close as possible. To stop this, take advantage of the many names still available in .swiss extensions.

Creating a Global Customer Base

Registering a .swiss domain can help you create a global customer base. The way in which it does this is by using a ccTLD that the people will trust. If an individual from swiss sees a domain with .swiss, they would be more likely to trust the company than if it was .com. It also boosts the ranking of the webpage on .swiss search engines. An example of this would be with google.fr. It would pick up .fr domains more easily.

.swiss .swiss Domain Restrictions: .swiss domain, The following will be eligible for the assignment of a domain name: Swiss public bodies or other public law organisations (Confederation, cantons, municipalities); bodies registered with the Swiss commercial register having their headquarters and an actual administrative site in Switzerland (companies, associations, foundations, persons registered with the Swiss commercial register); associations and foundations not registered with the Swiss commercial register having their headquarters and an actual administrative site in Switzerland. Domains are listed for 20 days before being accepted. One reason for rejection is that the domain name applied is generic (e.g. watches.swiss or hosting.swiss).

See Federal Ordinance https://www.admin.ch/opc/en/classified-compilation/20141744/index.html#a56 . Generic domains are considerably more.

Notes: Don't put "www" or the .swiss domain name suffix, ie. ".swiss", Thus for "www.nominate.swiss" enter "nominate" and no more.
