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.
