CH, for Switzerland's Latin name, Confoederatio Helvetica.
The .CH domain name extension is mainly used by businesses and individuals in Switzerland. Located in the heart of the European continent, Switzerland is bordered by Germany, Austria, Italy, France and Liechtenstein. Its official languages are German, Italian and French so you should consider registering .CH domains in multiple languages if necessary.
Another popular use for the Swiss .CH web address are domain hacks for URL shorteners with words ending in 'CH', such as tcrn.ch (TechCrunch) or christcur.ch. The .CH suffix is derived from the abbreviation of the latin name Confoederatio Helvetica (Helvetic Confederation). Search for the domain you want and purchase your .CH domain today.

Your domain registration questions, answered
How does getting a domain work?
There are two pieces to this equation. First, there are domain registries that own the individual top-level domains (like Verisign, which owns .com, .net, and a few other TLDs). Then there's us, the domain registrar, which provides a big online store that houses all the TLDs in one convenient location. When you register a domain, we reserve it for you through the individual registries... like an Amazon of sorts if you were looking for an HDMI cable.
Are there any additional things I need to buy?
Nope, every domain we sell comes with all the bells and whistles attached. If the TLD supports WHOIS privacy, we turn it on automatically. If you want to transfer your domain to another registrar, we don't have any secret add-ons to keep you tied down. And we don't place any weird ads or parking pages on unused domains — we don't see that much anymore, but it was a thing companies have done in the past.
