Launch of .eю (.eu in Cyrillic)

EURid ( "the Registry") has recently launched .eю (.eu in Cyrillic). All .eu domains that use Cyrillic characters have been cloned using the extension .eю.

Any future Cyrillic domain registrations will use the Cyrillic script extension (.eю) and not .eu. Any numeric registrations will have the option of either using the Cyrillic script or the Latin script. The original Latin script and the new Cyrillic script extension will co-exist for a period of 3 years from 1 June 2016 (known as the "script adjustment phase"), after which all Cyrillic registrations that are use the Latin script will lapse and become invalid.

From 1 June 2016, you will not be able to renew your Cyrillic domains in .eu so if it expires you will need to start using the new Cyrillic domain within .eю. All details from the .eu domain have been copied to the .eю domain apart from the nameserver and DNS information.

Registration and renewal prices for .eu and .eю will be the same.

Please note that .eu domain names registered in Greek script will continue to be managed within .eu.
If you have any questions about the launch of .eю, email us at
