Frequently asked questions

Can I register a .swiss domain as a private individual?

Yes, from April 24, 2024, private individuals will also be able to register a .swiss domain. However, certain requirements must be met for this.

Hostpoint is already accepting registration applications for .swiss domains and will submit them collectively to the registry nic.swiss (Federal Office of Communications) from April 24, 2024.

Until now, registering a .swiss domain was almost exclusively reserved for companies with an entry in the commercial register. The federal government has now relaxed the registration guidelines for .swiss domains.

Information on the registration conditions can be found in our Support Center.

What conditions do I have to fulfill as a private individual to register a .swiss domain?

Registration of .swiss domains is generally only permitted for Swiss nationals or people who are domiciled in Switzerland. Swiss nationals living abroad may only use their .swiss domains for private or charitable purposes or for the purposes of associations. The commercial use of .swiss domains is not permitted for people who are not resident in Switzerland, so you must provide your OASI number and address in the registration application.

Private individuals wishing to register a .swiss domain are subject to a number of conditions, at least one of which must be met. In relation to the person submitting the registration application, the desired domain name must contain one of the following:

  • an official surname or a surname entered in the civil register
  • a first name
  • a married name (e.g. Meier-Müller)
  • the common name for a registered partnership
  • a name obtained in a religious order
  • an artist’s name by which the person has become known
  • a name associated with a distinctive mark (e.g. a registered trademark) to which the applicant has the rights

Further information on the registration conditions can be found in our Support Center.

What are the requirements for generic .swiss domain names?

The requirements for generic .swiss domains differ for legal entities (companies, organizations, associations) and for natural persons (private individuals, sole proprietors). You can find the relevant information in our Support Center.
