European Domain Names – .EU Domains
This extension is the official top level domain of the European Union with over 37.8% of .eu websites being used for business purposes, compared with an average of 30.5% of websites under gTLDs like .com, .biz and .net.
The .EU domain name is perfect for individuals and businesses that want to be affiliated with the European Union. From a business perspective, the .EU domain is important as it allows commercial, not-for-profits and charities to protect their trademarks and establish an online identity in the European Union.
A .EU domain can offer you a unique destination to grow your business and reach more customers. In order to register a .EU domain however you must have a presence in the European Union.

The .eu Top Level Domain (TLD) allows users to create a pan-European Internet identity of their websites and e-mail addresses. It is available to all companies and organisations established in the European Union and to every resident citizen.
- For citizens: the .eu TLD is a place in cyberspace where their rights as consumers and individuals are governed by European rules and standards.
- For companies: a .eu website enhances their Internet visibility both within the EU single market and globally, and it advertises their pan-European status. This contributes to increase e-commerce presence, one of the goals of the Digital Single Market Strategy.
