Update on Covid-19 related domain name checks

25 sep 2020

We would like to update you on the .eu domain name check measures that were set in early April 2020 due to Covid-19.

Since April we have performed additional checks on the registration data of both existing registrations and newly-registered domain names that contain keywords related to the current pandemic. We requested their registrants to validate their data and provide us with a statement of good faith.

Today, the European Commission has requested us to prolong the checks on COVID-related newly registered domain names until mid-October 2020.

 Information on what to do, when your clients have received a registration data verification email from EURid are available here.
