We analysed the percentage of .eu and .ею IDNs with active name servers or redirects, with the following results:
- Highest rate of active nameservers for Latin script IDNs (45%, 76% if combined with redirects)
- Lowest rate of active nameservers for Greek script IDNs (7%, 12% if combined with redirects)
- Increase in active nameservers and redirects in Latin script during 2017 (an overall increase of 1% since 2016)
- Decreased rate of active usage (i.e. active nameservers plus redirects) in Greek script compared with 2016 (an overall decrease of 1%).
The figures for Cyrillic script combine .eu and .ею. When the .ею launched in June 2016, registrations were seeded by cloning over 1 400 existing Cyrillic second level .eu domains. Active Cyrillic script nameservers decreased by 4% over 2017, but this statistic decreases to only 2% if combined with redirects.
