Brexit and .EU Domains

If you have a .eu domain name with us and you’re using an address in the UK you’ll probably have got an email from us in the last couple of days.

As we’ve mentioned several times over the past few months Brexit will have an impact on a number of things, including .eu domain names.

While, like everyone else, we wait to see how Brexit pans out we do know that the .eu domain name registry will be obliged to enforce their registration policies.

What that means in simple terms is that if you have a .eu domain name and you want to keep it you will need to associate it with an address in the European Union.

We sent an email to affected clients this week asking them to update their domain registration details.

EURid recently updated their Brexit notice with timelines based on a variety of scenarios.

Bottom line? If you have a .eu domain name and currently are using it with an address in the UK (or Gibraltar) we’d urge you to update it to use an address in the EU to prevent potential headaches.

If you have any questions please let us know.
