SWITCH manages the .ch ccTLD for Switzerland, as well as the .li ccTLD for Liechtenstein. It is an independent organization but operating under the mandate of Switzerland's Federal Office of Communications. It entered into an agreement with the Principality of Liechtenstein's Office for Communications in 2012 to manage registry operations for .li.
As of January 2015, under the Ordinance on Internet Domains, the SWITCH Foundation ceased selling .ch domain names directly and handed over its client base to its registrars. Its focus, rather than on operating the .ch domain name directory, will be focused on a maintaining a secure and stable Swiss Internet.
