Upcoming changes

One aspect of the Brexit negotiations is the further procedure with .eu domains registered by a UK registrant. Eurid, the .eu registry, provides information about the topic on this continuously updated website.

To the best of our current knowledge, we understand that we will have to technically restrict .eu domains either from March 30, 2019 or January 1, 2021 to the extent that British domain holders will have to use our .eu trustee service like all other registrants from non-European countries.
