.EU domains after Brexit

In March 2018 the European Commission announced that upon the United Kingdom’s departure from the European Union, businesses and individuals in the United Kingdom will no longer be entitled to register .EU domains or renew existing .EU domains.

A number of workarounds have been identified and advertised such as establishing a virtual office in another EU member state or using an EU based service provider to become the registered owner of the domain. Although these solutions may work and allow .EU registered domains to remain active, this may not work indefinitely as the spirit of the decision is that .EU domains are for EU based individuals and businesses resident within the EU. Businesses are therefore required to adapt as part of their Brexit strategy.

Integritum is a UK registered business and although we offer services in the European Union, we have no physical presence in any other country. Consequently, we decided to decommission our Cyber Threats blog and redirect all traffic to this site where blogs will continue to be published. This redirection will remain active until the domain registration is deactivated. After which the only way to access the blog will be directly from this website.
