No Deal Brexit: Updated UK guidance published on registering .eu domain names

March 7, 2019

The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport has updated its guidance on .eu top level domain name registrations if the UK leaves the EU without a deal. The update reflects recent guidance published by EURid, the registry for the .eu top level domain names, (see our earlier story here) . The new DCMS guidelines replace those published on 21 December 2018.

In addition, the guidelines state that a new EU regulation concerning the .eu top level domain is expected to be formally adopted in March or April 2019, (see earlier story here). The new regulation will amend the eligibility criteria so that EEA citizens can register a .eu domain name independently of their place of residence, six months after the regulation comes into force.
