Domain names in Liechtenstein

In order to set up a website in Liechtenstein one must first choose a domain name. Liechtenstein’s top-level domain is .li which falls under the administration of the University of Liechtenstein. Until several years ago, the Swiss domain names administrator (SWITCH) was in charge with the registration of domain names in Liechtenstein, however now there are several companies acknowledged by SWITCH from which companies in the Principality can purchase domain names. Liechtenstein also recognizes international domain names like .com or .eu.

Registering a website in Liechtenstein

Foreign citizens or companies seeking to create a website in Liechtenstein must first determine the architecture of their site and they should take into consideration the following:

  • -          the minimum length of the site must be 3 characters while the maximum allowed is 63 characters;
  • -          it is also allowed to add hyphens in the name of the website, as long as they are place elsewhere than the first and last positions in the sequence;
  • -          one is also allowed to use numbers.

Once the name is established, the owner must verify with the accredited registrar if the name has not been taken. Then, based on a subscription fee, one can register the website. The license is available for one year and is also renewable.
