Might be interesting to Euro webmasters:

Eurid will manage .eu top-level domain - The TLD is supposed to be up and running by year's end



The European Commission confirmed today the appointment of a Belgian-led consortium called Eurid (the European Registry of Internet Domain Names) to manage the .eu top-level domain (TLD). The .eu TLD will be up and running by the end of the year, a commission spokesman said. It will sit alongside generic domains like .com and .info and country codes like .fr and .uk in the Internet address space. [...] Some further steps still have to be taken before .eu domain names can be registered. The commission said it will contact ICANN so that the .eu TLD is included in the root zone file. Eurid will also have to accredit registrars, which will manage the registration of domain names for the benefit of end users under competitive market rules, the commission said. The commission said Eurid will be based in Brussels.
