.eu in Cyrillic nearing launch

9 March 2016

EURid, the European Registry for Internet Domain Names, is pleased to announce that preparations for the launch of .eu in Cyrillic are nearing completion. The official launch date for .eu in Cyrillic is June 1, 2016. Please for a complete list of important administrative, legal, and technical guidelines regarding the implementation of .eu in Cyrillic and your new Cyrillic domain name.

Starting on June 1, 2016, EURid will fully enforce the basic rule that the second level script must match the top-level script. This means that the current domain names registered in Cyrillic under .eu (Latin string) will undergo a “script adjustment” phase.

All policies, procedures and features currently available for .eu (Latin string) such as transfers, bulk transfers, multiyear, DNSSEC, registry lock, etc., will also apply to .ею (Cyrillic string).

The current .eu Registration Policy, Terms & Conditions and WHOIS policy will apply to domain names registered under .ею (Cyrillic string).
