EURid announced it has again been selected by the European Commission to continue as the .eu TLD`s registry manager through to October 2027.
In May of 2021, EURid submitted its application to the EC call to manage the .eu TLD registry. The application highlighted EURid`s achievements over the past 15 years as well as the vision and plans for the future.
The four-month long selection process considered four eligible applicants:
- European Network Information Center ASBL (EU NIC)
- European Registry for Internet Domains, EURid vzw
- The Open Registry ASBL (“TORA”)
- Estonian Internet Foundation (Eesti Interneti Sihtasutus – EIS)
“We feel honoured to have been chosen to continue to serve the .eu stakeholders,” stated Marc Van Wesemael, CEO of EURid. “EURid is an award-winning registry due in large part to the expertise of EURid’s staff, the great relations with our accredited registrar community and the international partnerships we built year after year. We have built a trustworthy brand and proven that even those working in cyberspace can do so in a sustainable manner. We will continue working at the highest standard and look forward to ensuring the .eu value for all Europeans.”
