New Welsh domains launched for our website

13 May 2015 - 11:52am

We’ve joined many other Welsh organisations by moving our website to the new .wales and .cymru addresses.

Our new domains are now:

  • audit.wales for the English site, and
  • archwlio.cymru for the Welsh site.

Moving to the new Welsh domains will improve our national identity online, increase public awareness and support the wider campaign to make the web more Welsh.

The new domains have been available since 1 March 2015 and over 10,000 domains have already been registered, from small businesses to large public bodies.

Email addresses will also be updated to match the new domains, creating bilingual addresses for the whole organisation – this falls in line with our commitment to the Welsh language.

Our old domain name wao.gov.uk and associated email addresses will continue to work and redirect users for the foreseeable future.
