Continued growth for .eu in Q2
Brussels, 2 October 2014 - The .eu top-level domain finished Q2 with a growth rate of 4.2% year over year, according to the latest quarterly report released by the .eu registry EURid.
“Naturally we are pleased with the Q2 results, particularly as we find ourselves in a downward market, where new gTLDs are launched almost daily,” commented .eu General Manager Marc Van Wesemael. “With Croatia, Romania and Finland showing growth of more than 10%, this is a clear indication that .eu continues to be seen to be a reliable ex¬tension, a label of quality and trustworthiness.”

While registrations increased, the registry’s carbon emissions decreased in the quarter. After establishing that it had emitted 0.38 kg CO2 –eq per domain name in 2013, EURid elected to compensate for this emission by contributing to a wind turbine construction project in Gujarat, India, and to an agroforestry project in the region of Kaffrine and Fatick, Senegal, that focuses on the production of biodiesel from Jatropha seeds.
