EURid released its Q1 2021 Progress Report today, sharing its quarterly statistics and developments. Highlights include:

  • 186,488 new domain name registrations recorded;
  • Ireland tops the list of countries for registration growth at +9.3%;

Total registrations decreased slightly from 3,684,984 at the end of Q4 2020 to 3,681,337 at the end of Q1 2021, indicating an ongoing deletion of Brexit-related domain names registered in the UK.


The main developments throughout the quarter included:


  • Joining forces with the Global Cyber Alliance for the Domain Trust project;
  • Launching the second edition of the SAFEonLINE Art competition;
  • Prolonging the “SUSPENDED” status of Brexit-related .eu domain names to 30 June 2021, instead of the previously published date of 31 March 2021;
  • Implementing a KYC project to ensure that the information contained in any EURid-maintained database is accurate and up-to-date.
