Useful information about .eu domains

Trends & General Information

.eu domain is a very special top-level-domain: It's also a ccTLD, abbreviation for country code top-level-domain, which is usually only given to single countries. The European Union as such isn't really a country, but the .eu domain was exceptionally assigned to European Union. Registry of this top-level-domain is the EURid, a Belgian non-profit organization also called "European registry of Internet domains". The .eu domain is a very young domain, which was introduced in 2005. Initially only specific persons and facilities were allowed to buy and register their .eu domain, but since April 2006 a registration is allowed for each company with its head office in the EU, but also for every individual in the European Union.
