.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.
A phased launch of the new domains was scheduled, with trademark holders being eligible to apply initially. 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.
