As you most probably all know, .ch domains which are still registered at

But thanks to some recent marketing campaigns (like "Per 31. Dezember
2014 braucht Ihre .ch-Domain ein neues Zuhause!"),
it is really funny to hear/see these indeed. Even Switch did it in a way
by sending through switchplus notifies about switchie.ch which then
states that one does not need to move at all... right ;)

That is a rare thing.
But if you are afraid of that, why don't you become a registrar
yourself? Or at least a reseller?
Your long list does not include Joker.com
who are effectively based in
Zug and do a lot of domains. Oh I don't think they do any hosting,
though they do redirect stuff. And you can be a reseller for your own
- customer billed directly
From you or the remote party?
- DNSSEC / IPV6 capable
For DNSSEC your should specify that they have proper APIs in place for
updating keying material. And if you do that you cut down the list to a
very short few.
As last week Craigslist got stolen through a registrar hack, one now has
to wonder how liable .ch will become for that too...
At least whois does not show which registrar one is using hence they'll
have to hack a weak one which does allow the domain to be transfered for
them to get anywhere.
I still don't see why this registrar/registry split was needed, except
if it is all again about this Meja song.
