Attract Welsh customers to your website
Is your business based in Wales? Do you operate there or provide services or products specific to the Welsh market? A .wales domain helps you target your website and makes your Welsh identity clear.
As .wales is a newer TLD, fewer domain names are already taken compared to an established extension like .com. This means you've got a better chance of getting the exact one you want.
By registering a .wales domain, you can attract potential customers across the whole country. You'll also reach people with a Welsh connection based abroad.
Plus, with .cymru you can tailor your website even further for a Welsh-speaking audience. By setting up a simple domain redirect, you can easily forward your .wales domain visitors to your .cymru website, or vice versa – so why not register both?
