Brexit & .EU Domain Names

posted in: Domain Names | 0

This article is for anyone who has an .eu domain. With with a decision on Brexit scheduled for March 29th, we want to make sure you take the action needed to protect your online business.

The European Registry for Internet Domains (Eurid) has announced that when the UK leaves the EU, customers may no longer be able to have a .eu domain. Click here for more information on this announcement.

There are some actions you can take to protect your domain or minimize the impact of Brexit on your business.

If you HAVE a European postal address:

Please update the postal address of your domain registration to your European address, so that you can keep your .eu domain and secure it from being taken by your competition. Just let us know if this applies to you.

If you DO NOT HAVE a European postal address:

Unfortunately, you will not be able to keep your .eu domain name once Britain leaves the EU. We recommend that you transfer your site to a new domain to keep business running as usual during the Brexit transition and beyond.
