dotCYM – The campaign for a .CYM top-level domain

I happened across the dotSCO website, the campaign for a new .SCO top-level domain (TLD) for Scottish websites. Wondering in my ignorance if a similar thing existed for a Welsh related TLD I entrusted Google to answer my question…

The answer came in the form of the dotCYM website:

The Welsh language and culture is a community that we believe should be identified and enhanced by having its own sponsored top-level domain (sTLD) on the Internet. Under a .CYM sponsored TLD those organisations, companies and individuals, throughout the world, that express themselves in the Welsh language and/or wish to encourage Welsh culture will be able to be registered and will be clearly identifiable.

Personally, I’d love to see a distinct Welsh TLD, not only for Welsh language sites, but all Wales and Welsh related sites. The opportunity to carve out a small Welsh corner of the the internet in the form of the .CYM TLD is one that Welsh Directory supports.
