Vice-President Ansip, in charge of the Digital Single Market, said in his blog :
“I am pleased to see that more and more users are choosing the .eu domain, which connects more than 500 million people to one internet identity, across the 28 countries of the European Union as well as in Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway. A .eu website gives confidence and security to whoever is using it.”
From its origins, .eu has been administered by EURid, a non-profit organisation that operates on behalf of the Commission.
Many organisations and companies have adopted .eu in Europe, have a look at .eu success stories .
.eu is catching up both with the top level domains that have existed since the late nineties, such as .com, .info, .net and .org and is competing with new top-level domains introduced in 2014 such as .guru, .expert, .book or .london.
