Brexit will change eligibility to receive services in .EU domain!

Due to the United Kingdom’s withdrawal from European Union changes for .EU domain name holders and applicants with GB/GI as the registrant country code are expected.

Unless a ratified withdrawal agreement establishes another date, the United Kingdom’s withdrawal from European Union will take place on 30 March 2019, 00:00 h (CET).

On 23 March 2019 EURid (. EU domain registry) will notify for the first time and on 30 March 2019 will again notify by email .eu domain name registrants with GB/GI country code about the non-compliance of the data associated to their domain name within the .eu regulatory framework.

From 30 March 2019, 00:00:00 CET, EURid will NOT allow the registration of any new domain name where the registrant country code is either GB/GI.

Till 30 May 2019, 00:00:00 CEST, existing .EU domain name registrants will be given the possibility to demonstrate their compliance with the .eu regulatory framework by updating their contact data (e.g. indicating a legally established entity in one of the eligible EU or EEA Member States, or update of residence). During this two-month period, the domain names in question will remain active.

We encourage our customers to follow further notifications and update the contact details for your domain names in a timely manner.
