Your .EU and/or .ЕЮ extension at €12 only for 10 years (from 2019/05/02 to 2019/05/10)

On the occasion of an exceptional promotion on the .EU and/or .ЕЮ extension let's take a lookback on our most European extension: history, news and benefits all you need to know about .EU (and its Cyrillic declension) is right here!

 

 

 

The origins of .EU

 


The .EU extension finds its origins at the beginning of the 21st century, precisely in 2005. This extension is classified as a ccTLD, a first level extension, which means that it represents a geographic area: the European Union' one.

 

 

Launched on September 7, 2005 the .EU have quickly managed to convince intergovernmental institutions of the European Union. Previously using .eu.int, public institutions have transferred their domain names to a shorter and more impactful extension: the .EU.

 


Apart from public and intergovernmental institutions, the .EU extension was also made for national or community trademarks. Private individuals and right holders were progressively allowed to use this extension. A slow progression that avoided cybersquatting practises.

 

A particularly appreciated approach among professionals.

As any extension, the .EU is managed and operated by a Registry: EURid. It is a private non-profit organisation based in Brussels which relies on multiple Registrars such as Netim for the marketing of its extension.

 


.EU' benefits

 


Since 2009, new characters are authorised in .EU exploitation. As a matter of fact, domain names are not anymore restricted in the use of Latin alphabet, they are now allowed to use any European alphabet such as West European, Cyrillic or Turkish alphabet.

 

As part of this evolution, Netim offers a variation of the . EU: .ЕЮ the Cyrillic version of the extension.

An evolution that makes possible for everyone to create a domain name in accordance with its own language codes.

 

This development is part of a broader framework for the extension of permissible characters when registering domain names. Previously, only letters going from A-Z and numbers from 0-9 were allowed. With the appearance of diacritical signs, the IDN (Internationalized Domain Name) language enters domain names.

 

 


.EU' news

 

 

The .EU extension frequently finds itself tied to the news since its development is linked to European political and economic life. The most recent event is the Brexit when the Registry had to rule on the conditions of retention of .EU domain names for British citizens.

 

At the beginning of 2019, the Registry plans to revoke domain names for UK citizens already possessing a .EU. This decision would concern 250,000 domain names.
