Open registration begins...

The dot-eu domain is now open to all applicants within the European Union who wish to register web addresses.

The domain is available from today at 11.00am CEST on a first-come, first-served basis from more than 1,000 accredited registrars.

Trademark holders and public bodies have been able to register their dot-eu domains since December in the 'sunrise' period.

So far dot-eu registrar Eurid has received more than 300,000 applications for addresses with the domain and Marc Van Wesemael, managing director of Eurid, said he expects to see "several hundred thousand proud holders of brand new dot-eu domain names from Friday and onwards".
