Premium Names launched for .cymru and .wales

27th November 2014

The Premium Names list for the new .cymru and .wales domain names is published today, ready for applications from 29 December 2014 when anyone can apply for domain names that have not been registered in the earlier phases.

Premium names are those with popular terms that will generate high levels of interest. They will all be up for auction with a £50 reserve price plus application and registration fees.

The new .cymru and .wales domains have already started going live. The Welsh Assembly was the first to switch on its new domains and strong backing has come from many organisations, including the Welsh government, S4C, Sport Wales, the Federation of Small Businesses Wales, the Scarlets rugby team, the Welsh Rugby Union, the Millennium Stadium and the Arts Council for Wales.

General availability begins on St David’s Day, March 1st 2015.
