Updates and releases

Eligibility conditions for .eu are changing!

Starting 19 October 2019, the eligibility conditions for .eu domain names are changing.

The most important change is that citizenship is the qualification for eligibility as “European” rather than geography.

As such, starting 19 October the following categories of eligible individuals, companies and other organisations will be:

  • citizens of the European Union, that be their place of residence or not (new criteria)
  • individuals who are not citizens of the European Union (EU) but reside in an EU member state or one in the European Economic Area (EEA)
  • any company established in the EU or EEA (headquarters, central administration or home office)
  • an organization established in the EU or the EEA
