Update 05-11-2018

It seems very likely the two scenarios posted below are the most likely outcome as we quickly move towards the deadline of 29th of March 2019.

(1) If the UK exits the EU and becomes a temporary member of the European Economic Area (EEA) there will be no issue until the duration of such membership.

(2) If however, it turns out to be a “hard Brexit” or “no deal Brexit” than registrars are no longer in a position to service UK registrants for .EU domain names. Please read the below article if the situation is applicable to you as a reseller.

I do not think it is time to sound the alarm yet, but some caution and some thinking ahead of the Brexit might be advised when it comes to .EU domain names and Brittish registrants.

Who will be affected?

Organizations that are established in the United Kingdom but not in the EU and natural persons who reside in the U
