Changes just announced to .eu domain names are making the news today (I look at funny ‘news’!).

Notice to stakeholders: withdrawal of the United Kingdom and EU rules on .eu domain names.

As of the withdrawal date, undertakings and organisations that are established in the United Kingdom but not in the EU, and natural persons who reside in the United Kingdom will no longer be eligible to register .eu domain names or, if they are .eu registrants, to renew .eu domain names registered before the withdrawal date.

Just to update...

Freeola's domain renewal system took my money to renew a couple of .EUs for 2 years - so I'm assuming that's all good for now.

My advice would be that if you are using a .EU domain and it's up for renewal, renew it for 1 year and then consider moving to another domain suffix. Or you could so as some suggest and if you’re a small business or individual you can become an e-Resident of the Republic of Estonia*.


*This is just a theory, but the do say that anyone in the world can do this. Entirely at your own risk!

Hi Eccles,
Do you know what the latest is on .eu domains?

I've had a couple come up for renewal - not sure if it's worth doing or not?

Thanks,

I'll end up moving to Spain at this rate.

Thanks Hmmm... Read about this yesterday. Certainly 'interesting'. Still a glimmer of hope if this becomes part of negotiations.
