Top Level Domain (TLD) EU.
Reached Two Million Registrations
Internet Usage and Projected Future Usage Report

July 4, 2006

Since the eu. domain name was launched in December 2005, more than two million .eu web addresses have been registered making it the third most popular domain in Europe. EURid, the organisation that manages this domain, launched the registration period in December 2005, open initially to trademark holders wanting to register their brands and company names. The landrush .eu registration period, open to all, kicked off in April 2006. Since the launch, more than two million .eu domains have been snapped up, according to EURid.

Although the new European domain has some way to go to catch up with the popularity of the original .com domain, which currently has more than 50 million registrations, eu. is proving popular compared with some other new domains and country-code top-level suffixes. The Netherlands .nl and Italian .it domains, as well as .biz aimed at businesses, all have fewer registrations. In Germany it has proved most popular with 631,000 .eu addresses registered to date, followed by Britain with 374,000. The .uk domain, however, features almost five million registrations.

In a very short time TLD eu. become the third largest domain in Europe and the seventh largest internationally. EURid is the European Registry of Internet Domain Names, a not-for-profit organization appointed by the European Commission to register and manage .eu domain names. Founded in April 2003, EURid is headquartered in Brussels.
