Wale hello there! Today we're introducing two great new launching geo top-level domains (geoTLDs) that may be just what you need - .WALES, and .CYMRU ("Wales" in welsh). Both geoTLDs are great for targeting the welsh population with a trustworthy and recognizable domain extension, and are much more specific than the standard .UK domain. Read more to find out about the country, located in the United Kingdom, and find out why these TLDs could be perfect for you!

Wales: "Land of My Fathers"

New gTLDs .WALES and .CYMRU Launch : Register .WALES Domains : Register .CYMRU Domains - Northern Wales

Wales is a country located inside of the United Kingdom, on the island of Great Britain. It has a total area of 20,779 km2 (8,023 mi2), and a population of 3.064 million as of 2011. Wales is known as one of the modern celtic nations, and has deep roots in the celtic culture - the accent even reflects it (although the national language of Wales is Welsh before English). The country is rich in history, and has numerous landmarks that mark its distinctly medieval culture. However, many say that the most notable feature of Wales isn't the history or the sights, but the welsh people themselves. The welsh are known to be very animated, and full of song, earning the country the nick-name "the land of song." It is a country packed with culture into a small yet beautiful territory.

What to do in Wales

New gTLDs .WALES and .CYMRU Launch : Register .WALES Domains : Register .CYMRU Domains - Chepstow Castle

See that right there? Beautiful huh? That is one of Wales' most known sights - Chepstow Castle. Located in the southeast of the country, it is one of the many castles that tourists frequent in Wales. Not interested in castles? Never fear, there's even more to do in this place! Sports fans should check out Millennium Stadium, created to host the 1999 Rugby World Cup. Located on the eastern bank of the River Taff, it is an incredible site in the heart of the country's capitol. And, of course, for all of you Dr. Who fans, the Dr. Who tour is just what you'll want to see. Check out Lonely Planet's information about Wales for more travel plans.
