As registry operator, the Canton of Zurich guarantees the quality and security of the .zuerich TLD, which is the new top domain level domain for the strongest economic region in Switzerland and which already enjoys an excellent reputation.
Who is allowed to register a .zuerich domain as of December?
The new domain extension .zuerich is exclusively reserved for legal entities. This means that companies, organizations and public corporations with their registered office in the canton of Zurich are entitled to the registration and can thus present their connected point of view to the canton of Zurich and society in a stronger way.
Is there any way to submit a registration before the official launch date of December 2, 2021?
