SWITCH Cuts Price Of .CH Domains

SWITCH logoThe price of .CH domains for direct customers is being cut to CHF15.50 as of 1 February 2014 while the wholesale price has also been cut.

The reduction is a result of continued steady growth in the number of domain names registered, which grew by 81,878 domains under management in the 12 months to 30 September 2013 to 1,816,048.

As a partner of the universities, SWITCH brought the Internet to Switzerland more than 25 years ago. Today, the non-profit organisation with 100 employees at its headquarters in Zurich develops internet services for lecturers, researchers and students, as well as for commercial customers. It acts as the registry for all .ch and .li domain names, ensuring the security and stability of the Swiss Internet.

Protecting the Internet in Switzerland is SWITCH’s top priority. In 2010, for example, it became the first national registry to start successfully combating malware (harmful software) on its country’s websites. Thanks to these measures, domain names ending in .ch and .li are among the most secure in the world.
