At Domain.ch, you can register and manage all of your .ch domains. Transfer all of your .ch domains from SWITCH to Domain.ch today – a service by Hostpoint.
Domain.ch is a service by Hostpoint AG. Now that SWITCH is discontinuing its end customer business, Domain.ch offers a simple and convenient option for registering all of your .ch domains.
A domain or domain name is the address of your private or business homepage online. Domain names have a hierarchical structure: The outermost element to the right (e.g. .ch), known as a top level domain, is at the top of this hierarchy. All Swiss domains take the ending .ch, German domains the ending .com, etc.
SWITCH was previously responsible for the Swiss domain name index in its function as a registry. At the same time, SWITCH sold .ch domain names via its registrar service. The Directive on Internet Domains (VID) passed by the Swiss Federal Council has brought an end to this dual function, effective 1 January 2015.
Over the course of 2015, SWITCH will be dispensing with its business as a domain provider for end customers and focusing on its roles as a registry.
Domain owners must therefore transfer their domain names to a SWITCH partner such as Hostpoint. As an official partner of SWITCH for many years, Hostpoint guarantees that your.ch domain names remain yours and that you benefit from our professional service.
Click here to transfer your .ch domain from SWITCH to Hostpoint easily, conveniently and free of charge. To complete the change, you need your SWITCH login details, which you can request online here:
After registering or transferring your domain, you can independently manage your domain(s) at any time using a single login – even if you have multiple domains. This way, you do not have to enter new login details for each domain, making it easy for you to maintain complete control over all of your domains.
You receive free domain support from Switzerland, 365 days per year. The price also includes other useful domain features you can activate directly from the Domain Control Panel. You can configure every domain with an individual forwarder. Zone records can be modified with the convenient DNS editor or operated with specific name servers. As a domain owner, you always have complete control of your domain without being tied to any specific hosting provider. Web and email services can be operated by any provider in the world, independently of Hostpoint.
The domain name activation process normally takes from 12 to a maximum of 24 hours.
