Brexit and .eu domain names

Brexit and .eu domain names

The European Registry for internet domains (EURid) has decided that anyone without an EU postal address will no longer be able to own a .eu domain name once the UK leaves the EU.

Therefore EURid will be terminating all .eu domain names registered to UK addresses on one of two dates:

  • 30th March 2019 if the UK exits the EU with no deal
  • 1st January 2021 if the UK exits the EU with a deal

How do i keep my .eu domain name?

If you have an EU postal address you can use your .eu domain name as an admin contact.

What if I don’t have a EU postal address?

Unfortunately if you do not have an EU postal address you WILL LOSE your .eu domain name.

What should I do?

We would recommend if your .eu domain name is business critical then you should look to purchase a new domain name and start the transfer of your website or web assets linked to your present .eu domain across.
