Reminder of Greek .EU Phase Out

This is a reminder for all registrants with a .ευ (Greek IDN for EU) domain name that the corresponding Greek domain name(s) with the Latin .EU extension (Greek.Latin) will be phased out, ie. deleted, following a three-year phase-out period on 13 November 2022.

From 14 November 2022, only fully Greek domain names with the Greek .ευ extension (Greek.Greek) will remain registered.

In order to avoid an interruption in your web presence as of 14 November 2022, registrants should only use a Greek.Greek domain name.  Your Domain Strategist will be able to assist with this.

The cloning of Greek.EU domain names to .ευ took place on 14 November 2019.
