Update on EURid`s domain names checks

2 May 2022

EURid would like to inform all stakeholders that we are extending the Covid-related domain name checks. Initially, these measures begun in early April 2020 in order to protect end-users from possible misuse of domain names. As of 2 May 2022, due to the war in Ukraine, we will also started checking newly registered domain names that have a root of the word “Ukraine” in all EU official languages.

We have amended our APEWS system to prevent the registration of suspicious domain names.

Registrants of domain names containing certain keywords are invited to validate their data and submit a statement of registration in ‘good faith’. Should you receive an email from EURid with such a request, please consult this page for information about the follow-up actions required.
