Companies and public bodies operating in the canton of Zurich are able to use the .zuerich domain since August 30, 2021, thus showing that they are based in Switzerland’s strongest economic region. This provides an additional strengthening of the brand and the appearance of a company.

There are various advantages that a .zuerich domain brings with it. On the one hand it strengthens the brand and the appearance of your company. On the other hand, it shows the anchoring of the company or organization in the Zurich region. With a .zuerich domain comes additional design freedom. Thus, you can access suitable designations that are already occupied elsewhere.

Requirements:

The high quality and security of the top level domain .zuerich is guaranteed by the Canton of Zurich, which acts as registry operator. The new domain is exclusively reserved for companies with business activities in the canton of Zurich.
