.wales is one of two Country code top-level domains for Wales (the other being .cymru) which were put forth by Nominet_UK in 2012. Final approval for both top level domains for Wales was granted by ICANN in June 2014.[2]

A phased launch of the new domains was scheduled, with trademark holders being eligible to apply initially.[3] The launch is planned to culminate in general availability in the Spring of 2015. Early adopters of the domains include the Welsh Government and male voice choir Only Men Aloud.[4]
