.zuerich Registry Operator Website
This is the official Registry Website of the top-level domain .ZUERICH. The ICANN approved registry operator is the Canton of Zurich (Kanton Zürich)
The Canton of Zurich is one of the largest of Switzerland’s 26 Cantons, or national districts, and is home to the city of Zurich, which is the largest city in the country. The city has throughout its long history played an important role in the cultural and historical development of the Swiss Confederation and the country’s national identity.
The applied-for TLD string, “ZUERICH,” represents the phonetic pronunciation of the German-speaking Canton. In German, the spelling of the Canton is “Zürich”. The Umlaut over the “u” in the word produces a “ue” sound, leading to the pronunciation of “Zuerich”, corresponding to the proposed TLD text. Thus, it has become standard amongst Swiss Internet users, when typing, to replace “ü” with “ue.” The logical TLD for the Canton is therefore “.ZUERICH.”
The Canton anticipates benefitting from this new space by providing a comprehensive and helpful location where interested parties can learn more about the opportunities available in Zurich.
