The domains are immediately visible in your user account, but can only be managed after the invoice has been paid.

I have registered the wrong DOMAIN. Can I change it?

The registration of a DOMAIN is a binding purchase. It is not possible to change a registered domain if you make a mistake. In this case, the desired, correct term must be re-registered.

If you have made a mistake when entering the DOMAIN, there is no right of withdrawal and the invoice remains payable.

How long does it take for the requested DOMAIN to be registered?

Swizzonic has a direct connection to all registries from which we offer domains. This means that registrations are ordered immediately and usually confirmed by e-mail within minutes. You can see the domain immediately in your user account.

Exceptions are

  • .swiss, where only one application is possible, which is checked by the registry. Allocation takes around 30 days from the time of application.
  • Various country domains have longer allocation periods. As long as you do not receive an E-MAIL that the registration has failed, you do not have to do anything.

Are there any restrictions or rules regarding the choice of DOMAIN?

The rules for eligible domain names are not the same for all registry operators.
Please note that Swizzonic offers a subset of these rules:

For DOMAINs, the DOMAIN may be a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 63 characters long. All characters between «www.» and the «TLD» (Top Level Domain, e.g. .ch)» are counted.

Exceptions are DOMAINs with umlauts and special characters (IDN: Internationalized Domain Name). Because the Domain Name System does not support these characters, a translation, the ACE string, must be carried out «in the background». With an IDN, the translated characters in the ACE string are counted.

  • www.swizzonic.ch is 9 characters long.
  • www.bücher.ch is not 6
    ACE string: xn--bcher-kva.ch, but 13 characters long.

Please note that IDNs (What is an IDN?) are not yet supported everywhere by default. The functioning of such DOMAINs cannot be guaranteed in every case. It is recommended that you do not rely solely on an IDN for important applications.

DOMAINs can contain characters from the following character set:
a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t u v w x y z
0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 –

For the TLDs .ch, .li, .de and .eu, the following IDN characters are also permitted:
à á â ã ä å æ ç è é ê ë ì í î ï ð ñ ò ó ô õ ö ø ù ú û ü ý þ ÿ

For the TLDs .biz, .com, .info, .name, .net and .org and for most new generic domain names (gTLD), the following IDN characters are also permitted:
ä ö ü

Unfortunately, no general statements are possible for country code domains (CC-TLD). The general terms and conditions of the registry operators can be found in our GTC.

If you have any problems with the registration, please contact our support team. We will be happy to help you.

The DOMAIN must not contain a hyphen as the first, third combined with the fourth and/or last character (e.g. «-hallo.ch», «ha-llo.ch», «hallo-.ch»).

Registering, modifying or transferring protected (e.g. community names) or two-character DOMAINs

Community names

.ch DOMAINs specially protected by OFCOM (e.g. community names) are blocked for mutations at the SWITCH registry (new registrations, transfers and mutations such as change of holder or change of name server).

  • The registrar must apply to SWITCH to unblock the domain for such a change.

Please contact us so that we can have the DOMAIN unblocked for you at SWITCH for the change.

Once the change or registration has been made, Swizzonic must have the DOMAIN blocked again by SWITCH. Therefore, please let us know as soon as you have made the change.

Please note that if the DOMAIN is to be registered to a third party, the municipality (for which the DOMAIN was explicitly reserved with OFCOM) must give its written consent for the reserved DOMAIN to be registered to Mr. XY or company YZ with the user ID xxxxxxx.

Two-character DOMAINs

The only two-character domain names available are the canton abbreviations assigned to the cantons. The same guidelines apply to these DOMAINs as to municipal domains.

Registration of highly regulated TLDs such as .law, .swiss or certain country domains

Some DOMAINs are highly regulated by the registry and require additional information when applying. There are also some restrictions for country domains, which must be handled accordingly for a successful registration.

new gTLDsRequirements for
.aeroThe verification procedure must first be completed at the registry. Information and the application can be made under the following link:
https://www.information.aero/

You will receive confirmation with a code from the registry once the procedure has been completed. This code is then used for registration.
.law.law is a highly regulated TLD exclusively for patented lawyers and possibly also institutions with a direct connection to the administration of justice.
It is always assigned directly to the holder and cannot be assigned to a law firm, for example.
Information required from the customer:
– Cantonal office where the person is registered as a lawyer. The cantonal offices can be found under the following link: https://www.sav-fsa.ch/
– The year in which the applicant was granted the patent in the canton of registration.
.sportThe registry of .sport requires a description of the use of the domain. For this reason, the domain must be registered manually through us.
To register and renew a .SPORT domain name, the registrant must be a natural or legal person who has a connection to the .SPORT community at the time of registration and thereafter.
Specifically, registrants of .SPORT must be recognized artists, organizers, promoters or supporters of federal sports or belong to the categories of registrants recognized by the .SPORT Policy Advisory Board (PAB). Eligible registrants include, but are not limited to:
a. Sports practitioners and organizers: this class of registrants is intended to include those individuals, businesses and organizations that produce or organize and structure sports content as publicly visible stakeholders. This group includes in particular: Athletes, clubs, coaches, support staff, events, governing bodies, etc.
b. Corporate partners: This class of registrants is intended to include companies and organizations that support the production of sports content by providing resources in exchange for sports-related visibility, including sponsors and media.
Misrepresentation of the intended use is an indication of bad faith and may be the basis for suspension of the domain name.
