After Brexit, .eu domains are changing
“On 1st February 2020, the United Kingdom left the European Union (Union). The Withdrawal Agreement provides for a transition period until 31 December 2020. During the transition period, undertakings and organisations established in the United Kingdom and United Kingdom residents and citizens will continue to be able to hold and register a .eu domain name.”
At the end of the transition period, United Kingdom undertakings or organisations established in the United Kingdom but not in the Union, United Kingdom citizens who are not resident of a Union Member State, and United Kingdom residents who are not Union citizens will no longer be eligible to hold a .eu domain name.
