Registration rules

Registration of a .swiss domain name is subject to the following conditions:

All applications for a .swiss domain name must be approved by the registry according to the Eligibility and Name Selection criteria set in the .swiss General Registration Policy.
In case of rejection of the registration request, we will proceed with the refund of the order.

Eligibility of the registrant:
A check of the registrant's informations will be done on the validity of the registration number and its adequacy with the name of the entity.
In addition, the registry can ask for additional information in order to check eligibility and accept the registration request.

Currently it is not possible for an individual, even citizen or residant in Switzerland, to obtain a .SWISS domain name .

Eligibility of the domain name:
Applications are possible for the following domain names :

  • denominations related to public authorities and their tasks
  • protected brands in Switzerland
  • the names of associations and foundations
  • corporate names registered in the commercial register
  • geographical names: for this category, it is necessary to prove a legitimate interest or receive the authorization of the entity concerned
  • other names: any sequence of characters provided there is a clear relationship with the applicant or the intended use (such as product or services, and so on...)

Generic names generally refer to a category or class of goods (e.g. chocolate.swiss, cookies.swiss, pizza.swiss, watches.swiss), services (e.g. bank.swiss, finance.swiss, hairdresser.swiss, insurance.swiss), persons or groups (e.g. consumers.swiss, lawyers.swiss, students.swiss, families.swiss), organizations (e.g. universities.swiss, associations.swiss, clubs.swiss), objects (e.g. machines.swiss, tools.swiss, vehicles.swiss), industries (e.g. bakeries.swiss, carpentry.swiss, construction.swiss) or activities (e.g. soccer.swiss, sports.swiss, yoga.swiss) or that describe these.

These very generic terms may only be awarded under naming mandate (formal application for registering a group of domain names that benefit the entire community). Please note that NETIM does not offer this type of registration. Therefore, if an application is defined as a generic term by the Registry, the registration will be rejected.

Publication delay:
All validated names will be published on registry's website for a period of 20 days, allowing contending applications to be filed during such period, prior to turning into registrations.

Domain names will be allocated and activated online after the delay of 20 days.
Domain names shown as available could be already requested and currently in the publication delay.
