A group representing young farmers and broadcaster S4C will be among the first to change their website domain names to use .cymru and .wales this year.

Sport Wales and the Arts Council for Wales will also change their web addresses along with the Wales Federation of Young Farmers Club.

The Welsh assembly is leading the switch to promote Wales online and will drop its .gov.uk as soon as possible.

The new addresses are due to become available later this year.

Not for profit internet registry company Nominet said it will enable Wales to make its mark on the digital world.

The Only Men Aloud choir will become the first performing artists to use the new URL.
