Digit LIVE news - New .eu domain 'as important as .com'

Digit LIVE news - New .eu domain 'as important as .com'

The .eu domain opens for business this week but only for EU trademark holders and public bodies. In February registered companies (with office in EU) can apply, and in April anyone (in the EU) can apply.

EURid are the registry for .eu registations, though many existing registrars will becomes EURid regisitrars as well.

There is expected to be a large take-up of .eu registrations, though it's unlikely to get to the size of .com.

ICANN (who oversee the DNS systems) dropped plans for the .xxx top level domain (which would have been used for sex sites) last week.
