Has COVID-19 affected .eu registrations?
EURid has been monitoring COVID-19 related domain names since January 2020.
The checks include COVID-19 related domain name registrations and websites into which they may resolve and that sell COVID-19 related products.
So far, we have observed that most of the websites of registered domains are parked.
At registrant level, the distribution of COVID-19 related domain names follows “the higher the population, the higher the registration numbers” standard.
EURid continues to regularly analyse COVID-19 related domains, and report suspicious domain names to cybersecurity and law enforcement authorities as well as consumer protection agencies.
