.CH: Another example of Vertical Integration

Hello everyone,

just a bit of news as food for thought and discussion:

This october, SWITCH, the registry for .ch and .li has started to sell domain names through their own, fully integrated registrar. Switchplus AG, a wholle owned subsidiary of SWITCH has started offering .ch, .li as well as .com, .net, .info, .biz and .org domain names to the general public.

This move has been long announced and solicited criticism from the registrar community, however the customer is now able to also choose the registry itself as their provider.

While this may not be a model for the top international truly generic gTLDs, it does suggest that VI is a workable principle for community TLDs that closely resemble ccTLDs in setup and purpose.
