What are .cat domains

The .cat domain extension is the officially sponsored domain for the Catalan language and culture. It is a generic top-level domain, which means anyone in the world can use this extension globally. However, in order to register a .cat domain, you need to be either a speaker of Catalan or to use the domain to promote the Catalan language and culture.

Where did the .cat domain come from?

With the assistance of ICANN, the policy for .cat was created and launched in 2005. The registrations were opened to the public starting on April 23, 2006. The launch date of this domain extension was moved from the initial date of February 13, 2006 to April 21, 2006. The extension is managed and operated by Associació puntCAT.

What is the purpose of the .cat domain name?

The main reason behind the introduction of the .cat domain extension was to highlight the Catalan language and community online. While the domain is not restricted to a particular location, it is meant to be used only by the Catalan community. If you want to get a .cat domain, you therefore need to belong to the Catalan community and/or to use the domain to promote the Catalan language and culture online. You should have content in Catalan published online. After registration of the domain, you must publish the website in the Catalan language within a period of six months.
