.eu extends to EEA countries from 8 January 2014

Residents, companies and organisations based in the European Economic Area (EEA) countries of Iceland, Lichtenstein and Norway will be allowed to register .EU domain names from 8 January 2014.
“We welcome this positive development which has been in the air for some time,” commented the .eu registry’s General Manager Marc Van Wesemael. “The more countries and businesses that benefit from .eu’s unique identity, the stronger its brand becomes.”
“Iceland, Lichtenstein and Norway have had close economic ties with the European Union since the Community’s early years. Granting them access to the .eu top-level domain is a natural step forward in that relationship.”
“Our annual research shows that .eu is seen as a reliable and valuable online label. We are confident that the companies and residents of these countries will soon appreciate the advantages of the .eu TLD, including the strong security procedures for its management and databases.”
Lexsynergy is an accredited .EU registrar and can assist with registrations and local presence services.
