In technical terms, the domain “.swiss” has made important progress. The Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) registered “.swiss” in the domain name system (DNS) infrastructure at the end of April 2015. IANA manages the DNS rootzone database, which contains delegation details of all top level extensions (http://www.iana.org/domains/root/db). The Federal Office of Communications can now take the next steps and is on schedule to make “.swiss” available to the Swiss community in autumn 2015. Interested organisations with a link to Switzerland can then submit their applications.
