Greek .eu domain names phase out on 13 November 2022

14 Feb. 2022

Reminder to all registrants with a .ευ domain name.

The Greek domain name(s) with the Latin .eu extension will be phased-out, i.e. deleted, following a three-year phase-out period on 13 November 2022.

From 14 November 2022, only Greek domain names with the Greek .ευ extension (Greek.Greek) will remain registered.

In order to avoid an interruption in your web presence as of 14 November 2022, registrants should only use a Greek.Greek domain name. Please follow up with your registrar on the matter.

Our .ευ guidelines explain in detail the cloning of Greek .eu domain names to .ευ, which took place on 14 November 2019. As part of that process, a three-year script adjustment phase was launched, which allowed for both Greek .eu domain names and their clones in .ευ to coexist for a period of three years, ending on 13 November 2022.

The phase-out of Greek domain names with the Latin .eu extension is being done to follow the ‘no script mixing’ best practice for Internationalised Domain Names. The objective of the ‘no script mixing’ best practice is to avoid confusion about domain names that look similar.
