Report on the Implementation, Functioning and Effectiveness of the .eu Top-Level Domain

Source: European Commission

From Background:

In April 2015, the .eu Top-Level Domain (TLD) celebrated its 9th anniversary. Over the past nine years, the .eu country code TLD profiled itself as an innovative and modern extension, very much able to catch up both with the TLDs which have been in the domain environment since the late nineties and to compete with the new generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs) that have been introduced in 2014. At the end of the first quarter of 2015 (Q1 2015), the .eu TLD was the sixth largest country code TLD (ccTLD) in the world. With almost four million registrations, the .eu TLD has become a valued option for Europeans when choosing a domain name for their Internet presence....

This report to the European Parliament and the Council concerns the implementation, effectiveness and functioning of the .eu TLD over the past two years, in particular during the period from 1 April 2013 to 31 March 2015.
