.swiss passes technical tests
The infrastructure to manage the new .swiss domain name meets the criteria in relation to reliability, stability and security imposed on top-level internet domain operators. This was confirmed by ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers), the company responsible for managing internet addresses, at the beginning of the year after submitting the technical environment intended to manage .swiss to a series of tests which were successfully completed.
From a technical viewpoint, there is nothing to prevent the implementation of .swiss scheduled for this autumn. In the meantime, the Federal Office of Communications (OFCOM) is responsible for defining and implementing the business processes required for registering and managing domain names.
