Who uses .eu?

During the second website categorisation exercise in 2022, we crawled 200,000 domain names, 80.8% of which were connected to a web server and 78.654 of which hosted rich content (web pages with user-generated content).

10,000 of the rich content .eu websites were manually classified by Italian cooperative “Officina dell’ abitare”, based on a set of categories chosen and defined by several CENTR members. To achieve a higher level of accuracy, each website was reviewed by three different operators.
