ccTLD Newsflash: .EU domains and Brexit

EURid has updated its notice regarding .EU domains registered to UK registrants, and you can see the full notice here.

As mentioned in previous communications, from 1 January 2021, 00:00:00 CET, EURid will not allow the registration of any new domain names by UK registrants.

On existing registrations, the following steps will be taken:

  • On 21 December 2020, EURid will notify by email all UK registrants who have not yet demonstrated compliance with the eligibility criteria and their registrars.
  • On 1 January 2021, EURid will notify by email all UK registrants, and their registrars that their domain name is no longer compliant with the .EU eligibility criteria and the domain’s status will change to “suspended” until 31 March 2021.
  • On 1 April 2021, EURid will send a final email notification to UK registrants, and their registrars and the domain’s status will change to “withdrawn”.
  • On 1 January 2022, all the .EU domain names with the “withdrawn” status, will be revoked and will become available for registration.

Domain names with the “suspended” status will no longer function or support any service.

We will keep you informed of any developments or announcements.
