About .cymru domains
The .cymru domain name was proposed by Nominet, the registry of British domain names, including Welsh extensions. The .cymru extension was accepted in 2014 by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), to be at the same level as other generic top-level domains (gTLDs).
The .cymru domain was chosen along with the .wales domain by Nominet. These two extensions are therefore intended for the same nation, even if their purposes differ. .cymru domains showcase Welsh language and culture. The .wales extension is used to distinguish different geographical locations within the United Kingdom.
Since 2015, .cymru domains are accessible to anyone without restriction. Brands, legal entities and individuals can therefore purchase a .cymru domain name without having to justify their affiliation with Wales.
