.eu Domains & Brexit: What You Need To Know
In a notice issued by the European Registry for Internet Domains (EURid), they advised that once the UK leaves the EU, UK registrants of .eu domains will lose their domains unless they provide an EU postal address as the registration address.
EURid will terminate all .eu domain names registered to UK addresses on one of two dates:
- 30 March 2019 if the UK exits the EU with no deal
- 1 January 2021 if the UK exits the EU with a deal

How to keep your .eu domain name
If you have an EU postal address, you can use it as your domain’s admin contact. To continue using your domain as normal, please update your domain registration details.
What if I don’t have an EU postal address?
Unfortunately, this means that you will lose your EU domain. Please contact us for further information.
At this stage, if you do not have an EU postal address, we strongly suggest you:
- Purchase a new domain name
- Transfer your website over to your new domain
- Redirect your EU domain to the new website
