The domain name with the suffix ".eu" may not be used in such way that it does not violate any third-party rights, applicable laws or regulations, including discrimination on the basis of race, language, sex, religion or political view. Besides that, the domain name may not be used in bad faith or for any unlawful purpose.



.eu is the country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for the European Union, and organisations and citizens of EU member states, which was launched on December 7, 2005. Trademark owners were able to submit registrations through a sunrise process (similar to the launch of .info), in an effort to prevent cybersquatting. Full registration started on April 7, 2006.



Below you find the explanation of the different statuses of domain names



Registered:

The domain name has been registered by another party and is currently unavailable. Entering the “captcha” code (random coloured code on the left hand side on the bottom of the screen) and clicking on “details” will show you the contact details of the current owner of the domain name.



On hold:

The domain name has been blocked by the Registry (EURid) because it is subject to an ADR or because it has been proven that the current owner of the name does not meet the eligibility criteria for .eu.



Blocked:

The domain name has been banned by the European Commission or one of the EU member states and can never be registered. For a complete list of all blocked names, click here.



Application Pending:

One or several people have applied for the domain name during the Sunrise period. The validation agent has yet to validate all applications for the domain name.



Reserved:

This name has been reserved by the Commission or one of the Member States for their own personal use and may not be registered by a member of the general public.



Available:

The domain name has not yet been registered by anyone. Anyone based within the European Union is free to register it.

Quarantine: The domain name has been deleted, meaning that it is in a 40 day quarantine period before being made available again to the general public for registration.



My personal details are visible in WHOIS

If an organisation owns the domain name in question it cannot remove its personal details from the WHOIS as organisations are obliged by European law to display their contact details.
Transfer possible Yes
Authcode (Transfer) Authcode required
Transfer fee € 8.49

.eu domain names can be transferred to a new registrar regardless of whether or not the holder of the domain name changes.

Transfers require a transfer authorisation code.



Transfer procedure:

Request an authorisation code from your current registrar. To verify your registrar, look up your domain name in the WHOIS database.

Your registrar’s name will be listed in the “Registrar” section of the query result.The authorisation code you receive from your current

registrar you can place an order with Networking4all. Then we will process the transfer of your domain name.



To transfer your domain name to a new registrar and to a new holder:



Request an authorisation code from your current registrar. To verify your registrar, look up your domain name in the WHOIS database.

Your registrar’s name will be listed in the “Registrar” section of the query result.

Once you receive this code, send it to the future holder of the domain name, who in turn must send it to their registrar.

Their registrar will process the transfer of the domain name.



To change the holder of the domain name (if the registrar remains the same):



Please contact your registrar to find out how to change the holder of your domain name. To verify your registrar, look up your domain name in the WHOIS database. Your registrar’s name will be listed in the “Registrar” section of the query result.



Transfers are possible. Upon successfully transfering a .EU domain, it is automatically renewed for one year. The registration period is extended by one year.
