Registration

 

A .ch domain name registration is realtime and requires no specific additional data outside of the regular contact details for the owner, administrative and technical contact.

NB! SWITCH will refuse registration of a domain name if the domain name in question has been reserved by OFCOM or the Office of Communications (e.g. names of municipalities), unless the requirements for registration defined by OFCOM/Office of Communications for the relevant category are met

 

Transfer

 

To transfer a .ch domain name please make sure to first get the authorisation code from the current registrar. Using this code you can request the transfer through our website.
The transfer will complete instantly and the domain name will be available in your account immediately.

The registry locks a domain for transfers for the first 60 days after the previous transfer. Upon request, the registry can remove this lock.

The registry will not send an e-mail to the domain contacts after the transfer finishes.
