In October 2015, CERN’s core website has been moved to a new address,, marking the launch of the brand new top-level domain .cern.  In combination with a formal governance and registration policy, the IT infrastructure needed to be extended to accommodate the hosting of Web sites in this new top level domain.  We will present the technical implementation in the framework of the CERN Web Services that allows to provide virtual hosting and a reverse proxy solution and includes the provisioning of SSL server certificates for secure communications.
