Tens of thousands of UK based webmasters are likely to experience major changes after 2021--Under the influence of regulatory changes in brexit, the European Internet domain name registry (Eurid), which administers. EU domain names, announced that it would suspend. EU domain name websites applied by British citizens.
After the resolution is suspended, these. EU websites will not be able to use services such as website or e-mail. In the next three months, the webmaster needs to submit the relevant owner's rights statement to Eurid. This means that webmasters can either update their contact data, transfer the. EU domain name to an EU subsidiary outside the UK, or declare citizenship or residence to EU members.
Eurid said that once the contact data is updated, the domain name will be re enabled - but only in the next few months. For those users who have not proved their qualification after March 31, 2021, their domain names will be revoked. If no action is taken at that time, they will be provided to ordinary users for registration again from January 2022. Eurid said 81000 domain names from 50000 users had been suspended.
Eurid's suspension of uk domain names comes after a series of mixed signals from the European Commission, which decided to guide the registration of. EU domain names. EU regulations currently stipulate that. EU websites can only be assigned to EU citizens - no matter where they live - as well as non EU citizens and organizations established in Member States. In other words, after brexit, the. EU domain names owned by British citizens in the UK suddenly become non EU websites hosted in non EU countries.
