.cymru is a top-level domain (TLD) for Wales. The TLD was proposed by the British internet registry company Nominet, which has run the domain for the UK (.uk) since 1996.[2] The proposal initially ran into conflict with .cym, proposed by the Wales-based, not-for-profit dotCYM organisation, which advocates for the Welsh language and culture.[3][4]

In June 2014, final go-ahead for the domains was granted by ICANN, and a phased launch of the new domains began.[5][6] Initially, the new domains were available to trademark holders, with full availability originally planned for the spring of 2015.
