Who uses .eu?

During the website categorisation exercise of November 2020, we crawled 150 000-domain names, out of which 82.5% were found to be connected to a web server. 77 760 had rich content (web pages with content generated by the user) websites.

Of the domain names with rich content, 10 000 .eu websites were manually classified by the Milan based Italian cooperative “Opera in Fiore” according to the categorisation defined by CENTR and based on the statistical classification of economic activities in the European Community, abbreviated as NACE. To insure the highest-level accuracy, the websites were categorised by three different operators.
