Do you own a .EU affiliate site?

Some important news announced this morning if you run a casino affiliate (or indeed ANY personal/business) site from the UK on a .eu domain

--

The European Commission has confirmed that post-Brexit, individuals and organisations established in the United Kingdom will no longer be eligible to register or renew .eu domain names.

Unless a withdrawal agreement is reached, British registrants, who hold the fourth largest number of .EU domain registrations, will lose their ability to register or renew .EU domain names.

--

Like all domain extensions, you can renew up to 10 years ahead. So if you have a .eu domain make sure you renew now for as long as possible to avoid losing your site :)

As a joint British/Maltese resident, I'll be happy to help any CM webmasters if a deal isn't reached before Brexit.

Well, you'd think that if you can prove you have business in the EU or a trademark registered in the Eu, then you should be exempt. This is how other jurisdictions deal with this. Canada, US, etc.

But yeah, good time to extend - or look into your trademark rights if you have one.

With my mum being Irish, it's about time I get myself an Irish Passport. This information just reaffirms it for me. :)

Final decision was made last week...

The European Commission has decided that it won’t allow anyone without an EU address to own a .eu domain after Brexit.

EURid has set out a timeline. If you live in the UK, your domain will be cancelled on one of two dates...

  • 30 March 2019 if the UK exits the EU with no deal
  • 1 January 2021 if the UK exits the EU with a deal
