Up until now, there were no dedicated Welsh domain names to choose from and it’s not just about websites, having a domain name means you can have a personalised email address that reflects your online identity.

Many of Wales’ leading businesses, brands and organisations are already backing the new domains including the National Assembly, the Millennium Stadium, Sport Wales, the Federation of Small Businesses Wales, the Scarlets rugby team and the Arts Council for Wales.
