A moment of celebration took place on 14 November 2019 in Athens. Members of the Greek internet community, registrars, domain name users and government officials came together to welcome the newest addition to the IDN family, the .ευ Top Level Domain.
EURid, the registry for .eu hosted the event. The guests were treated to a traditional Greek banquet, speeches and entertainment from illusionist, Mr X.
After a ten year application through ICANN’s IDN ccTLD Fast Track process, .ευ started to accept registrations earlier that day. The launch of .ευ completes the support for the 24 EU official languages across .eu, .ею and .ευ, offering Europeans the opportunity to register domain names in their own languages.
