About the .eu Domain Name and it's registration procedure

At the launch of the .eu Domain Name, there will be a sunrise period of 4 months during which only public bodies and those with recognised rights to a name (such as trademark holders) may register.

.eu Domain Names will be registrated on a first-come-first-served basis.

In Addition to the usual information required to register an .eu domain name, sunrise applications will be required to state the right they are claiming to the domain name (for example: company name or trademark) and under which law that right is granted.

In some cases, a company might have a right to a name from a number of sources (for example, a company may be registered by that name in the national register and it may also have a registered trademark of the same name). When applying for an .eu domain name, only one right can be claimed in each application.

The registration fee has to be payed within 14 days after applying a Domain Name with viennatec. In case a application is not successful, part of the Sunrise-Fee will be refunded. Prices

The sunrise period consists of two phases each lasting two months. Immediately after the 4-month sunrise period is over, registrations will be taken on a first-come-first-served basis.
