What is .eu?
.eu is a new Top Level Domain that is available to any individual that is an European Union resident or any organization or company established in the EU. It does not replace the existing national ccTLDs in the EU, but complements them, giving EU residents the option of having a pan-European Internet identity for their online presence. This new TLD is particularly useful for organizations and companies operating at a European level, which have taken advantage of the EU Single Market.

Why should I register a .eu domain?
The EU has one of the largest numbers of Internet users in the world and the introduction of the .eu TLD has created even more awareness of the Internet as a global medium for trade and the exchange of information. You will gain continent-wide exposure that is recognizable in all 25 EU member countries.

Benefit from the opportunity to take advantage of a brand new TLD and have a greater chance secure the domains of your choice in the first ever pan European TLD to take advantage of the single EU market.
