What Happens Now For Brits With .EU Domains? For Now, Nothing.

EURid logoWell, in short, for the time being, nothing. Following the referendum today where Britons voted to leave the European Union, EURid has released a statement saying that “as the next steps have still not been determined and the political and legal processes have not yet been initiated, note that no action will be taken against .eu or .ею domain names that have been registered by residents in UK.”

The statement continues saying “when further details are known about the timing and details of a UK exit, the European Commission will instruct EURid on how to proceed. We will continue to keep all our stakeholders fully informed.”

To be eligible to register a .eu or .ею (Cyrillic script) domain, the registrant must be “any natural person, company or organisation residing in or established in the European Union, Iceland, Liechtenstein or Norway.”
