SWITCH manages the .ch ccTLD for Switzerland, as well as the .li ccTLD for Liechtenstein.[1] It is an independent organization that operates under the mandate of Switzerland's Federal Office of Communications.[2] It entered into an agreement with the Principality of Liechtenstein's Office for Communications in 2012 to manage registry operations for .li.[2]

As of January 2015, under the Ordinance on Internet Domains, which aimed to ensure that private individuals, businesses, and public bodies in Switzerland are offered a sufficient, reasonably priced, high-quality range of internet domain names that fulfills their requirements,[3] the SWITCH Foundation ceased selling .ch domain names directly and handed over its client base to its registrars. Its focus shifted from operating the .ch domain name directory to maintaining a secure and stable Swiss Internet.[1]
