Welsh Assembly Members are to support a campaign to enhance Welsh culture and identity on the world wide web.
It would mean that organisations, companies and individuals would have the option to replace .uk with .cym.
The campaign is being organised by dotCYM and has support from a wide range of sectors including commerce, design, public relations, publishing and the legal sectors.
Assembly Presiding Officer, Lord Dafydd Elis-Thomas, said today: "I believe that a dotcym sponsored top level domain could play an important role in promoting Welsh culture and language in the UK and abroad.
"As well as Welsh language sites it could also be used for sites in another language which are of Welsh interest. Since .cat has been introduced as a TLD in Catalonia, there has been an increase of 33% in the number of sites using Catalan, so it would it seem that the adoption of .cym would be an effective way of promoting the Welsh language and Welsh identity.
"It would also be a part of the democratisation of the web."
