9 000 .eu domain names revoked following court decision
EURid revoked almost 9 000 .eu domain names on 14 September 2011, following the resolution of a Brussels Court of Appeal case in EURid’s favour. Here is the list of .eu domain names in CSV and PDF formats.
Domain names are released on an hourly basis by a scheduled job, which typically runs shortly past the hour. The precise moment of release depends on the status of other jobs (such as transfers) scheduled to run before the delete job. While the precise timing cannot be predicted, the release of domain names can be expected to start within the first 5 minutes of the hour. As the names are released in sequence, and the number being processed is high, it is possible that there will be a delay between the release of the first and last domain of each list.
The Court of Appeal found that these .eu domain names were registered in bad faith by a Ms Zheng and therefore the registrations were to be terminated.
Released after quarantine
Following EURid’s standard business terms, these revoked domain names are in quarantine for 40 days from 14 September 2011. Then, these domain names will be released over a 48 hour period on 24 and 25 October 2011 for registration on a first-come, first-served basis.
.eu domain names can be registered by anyone eligible whose request is received by EURid in the technically correct manner via a .eu accredited registrar. Any individual, organisation and business residing within the European Union is eligible to register .eu domain names.
