.EU's in a nutshell
Who operates .EU?
EURid was the consortium chosen to run the .eu TLD, by the European Community. This a not for profit organisation which also runs the Belgian, Italian and Swedish registries. EURid works exclusively through a network of registrars who will register .eu domain names on behalf of their customers, with minimal intervention from EURid.
If you cannot obtain the .EU domain you wanted
If a .EU domain name shows as not available on our website it does not necessarily mean it has been registered. If this occurs heck the status of the .EU domain name at the official EURid whois at www.whois.eu. Certain .eu names are been held back by Eurid, and domains applied for during the "Sunrise Period." Some domains may become available for general registration, after certain applications during the initial Landrush period have expired or been rejected.
Despite the popularity of .EU domains, there is still plenty of choice for good generic names.
Registered domains can sometimes be purchased from the existing owner. In these cases we can recommend domain name brokers who can negotiate anonymously to purchase the domain on your behalf.
.EU Domain Disputes
If you have a right to a .EU domain name but it has been registered by someone else, EURid operates a procedure for resolving disputes about .EU domain names which is operated by the Prague-based Arbitration Court in the Czech Republic. It administers Proceedings in accordance with the Public Policy Rules for .EU as directed by European Commission (EC Regulation 874/2004).
