EURid's 2018 Annual Report Reveals Strong Growth in Six Countries and Major Actions to Fight Abuses
Compared to 2017, the total net registrations decreased by 130 305 (from 3 815 055 to 3 684 750), while DNSSEC-signed domain names grew by 69 724 (from 443 600 to 513 324).
The decline in the overall number of registrations can be attributed both to a reduction in the number of new registrations in the UK (mainly due to the UK’s withdrawal from the EU, which resulted in the UK falling from being the No. 4 market for .eu to No. 6 in one year), and to the increased efforts of EURid to build a trustworthy and secure .eu namespace which resulted in over 35 000 domain names being suspended in H2 2018.
EURid is a non-profit organisation that operates the .eu and .?? TLDs, following a tender process and appointment by the European Commission. EURid works with over 700 accredited registrars and provides support in the 24 official EU languages. As part of its ongoing commitment to data security, EURid has been certified for the ISO27001 security standard since 2013. EURid is also registered by the EU Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS), which is an expression of its environmental commitment. More information at: www.eurid.eu.
