.CH Domain (Switzerland)

16.20 USD / year
Please enter your desired domain name:
Switzerland has .ch as its geographic top level domain (ccTLD) and is currently managed by SWITCH. Many international companies have their headquarters in Switzerland, due to the low tax burden and the legal system that allows them to make investments easily and quickly.

There are currently more than 2.3 million registered .ch domains, a considerably high number even considering that they were launched in 1990.

In addition to .ch, SWITCH also manages the Liechtenstein ccTLDs: the .li domains.

Holder's correspondence address

If a Swiss authority within the scope of its competence demands from the registrar that a holder of a domain name designate within 30 days a valid address for correspondence in Switzerland and the registrar does not take the necessary steps to do so within 10 days of receipt of the request, the registry will demand from the holder of the domain name that the latter fulfil the corresponding obligation. The registry will revoke the domain name if the holder does not comply with the request in a timely manner.

Notice for Transfers

For the transfer an auth code is required. Your current registrar will give you that code on request. The transfer will be processed in real-time.
