PuntoGal Association is an organization that plans to apply to ICANN for a new TLD, .gal, to represent the Galician community in Spain and abroad. The goal is to reinforce the community that uses and represents this ethnicity and language.[1] They were Inspired by the .cat TLD, which was successfully created in 2005 via an agreement between ICANN and PuntCat, and is directed at the Catalan community in Spain and abroad.[2][3]

The PuntoGal association was created in 2006 with the goal of creating the .gal domain.[4] Since then, the association has been active in ICANN activities and meetings to better represent their proposal.[5] PuntoGal presented their agenda at the 10th ICANN Studienkreis meeting held in January, 2010, in Barcelona.[6]


The dotGal initiative is supported by over 12,000 people around the world so far. Some organizations supporting the project include:[7]

  • Galician Royal Academy
  • Galician Council of Culture
  • University of Santiago de Compostela
  • Galician Radio & TV Company
