Update on Brexit related .eu domain names
We would like to update you on a recent change agreed with the European Commission on .eu domain names assigned to UK registrants.
The Brexit Notice page has been updated accordingly.
The following steps will be taken:
- On 21 December 2020, EURid will notify by email all UK registrants who have not yet demonstrated continued compliance with the eligibility criteria and their registrars about the risk of forthcoming non-compliance with the .eu regulatory framework.
- On 1 January 2021, EURid will notify by email all UK registrants and their registrars that their domain name is no longer compliant with the .eu eligibility criteria and is moved to the “SUSPENDED” status until 31 March 2021.
- On 1 April 2021, EURid will notify again by email all UK registrants and their registrars that their domain name is no longer compliant with the .eu regulatory framework and is moved to the “WITHDRAWN” status.
- On 1 January 2022, all the domain names in the “WITHDRAWN” status, formerly assigned to UK registrants, will be REVOKED and become AVAILABLE for general registration.
Please note that the domain names in the “SUSPENDED” status no longer function or support any service. The registrar of such domain name can update the registration data, transfer or delete the domain name.
