Choose a name
A domain name must be unique. To check whether a given name is still available use the WHOIS search function, which you will find at the top of every page of our website, or here. Domain names must meet with a number of technical requirements:
minimum 2 characters among the letters "a to z", the numbers "0 to 9" and the hyphen "-";
maximum de 63 characters;
must not begin or end with a hyphen;
must not contain a hyphen "-" on the 3rd and
EURid is committed to introducing iDN in the future, allowing registration of names containing other characters found in the official
languages of the EU (Ω,Φ,ñ,Ä,å etc ).
In accordance with EU Regulation 733/2002 and EC Regulation 874/2004, some names are blocked from ever being registered and some are Pre-registerd for use by the institutions of the EU or the governments of member states, EEA countries and candidate countries.
As soon as the European Commission announces the list, we will publish it on our web site.
Read the terms and conditions of registration
When registering a .eu domain name you lend your explicit agreement to the general terms and conditions for end users. This includes being bound to submit to Alternative Dispute Resolution if another party with a recognised right to the domain name claims that your registration was
made on a speculative or abusive basis. Full details will be published soon.
Provide us with the necessary details
You will need to provide us with the following details: Trading name (where appropriate) + contact person: name + phone no. + address + valid e-mail address!!! A valid e-mail address is of the utmost importance, because it is our only direct means of communication with you: it will be used as a means of contact, for example, if you wish to change registrars. EUregister.org may withdraw a domain name if it has no active e-mail address.
Modify domain holder
The domain name holder can only be modified by using the TRADE-DOMAIN transaction which requires a fee (equivalent to a new registration) and the explicit consent of both parties.
It is not possible to correct a misspelled domain name; you will have no other option but to register the correct name and pay a second fee.
Updating the name server
Only when the EUregister.org name server has been updated will your domain name become active. This occurs five times a day.
When registered, your domain name will be immediately stored in the WHOIS database. Some of your details will become available in the public WHOIS look-up facility to enable interested parties to know who lies behind a given domain name or its associated website. Obviously, the WHOIS database will be subject to restrictions, as a means of preventing misuse and in order to comply with data protection requirements. Anyone who accesses information via the WHOIS will be
subject to a disclaimer, which essentially stipulates that the information cannot be used for commercial purposes.
EUregister.org will make every effort to successfully register your .EU domain name. Please note that submitting a .EU domain name application during firsts days does not guarantees a successful domain name registration.
