New rules on the .eu top level domain (TLD)

28-01-2019

The .eu TLD is the domain name of the European Union, as well as its citizens, and in use since 2005. According to the European Commission, the existence of a specific domain name for the European Union under a clear and recognisable common label is an important and valuable building block for an online Union identity. The Commission has adopted a proposal to ensure that the .eu legal framework still serve its intended purpose and values and is future-proof. The Parliament and Council reached a negotiated agreement on the proposal, which is scheduled to be voted by Parliament at first reading during the January II plenary session.
