Another informative article on .eu domains.

"ICANN accredited registar Secura announced that the company is accepting applications for the sunrise and real time period of .eu domains.

Sunrise Period:

You should send now to http://www.domainregistry.de/eu.html your applications to secure your rights at the new .eu domains. The .eu domains will be the most important event since the introduction of .com domains.

The EU Regulation stipulates that the registry must make a sunrise provision at .eu domains to allow those with "prior rights" to a name to apply for registration of .eu domains in advance of beginning general registrations. The PPR states that the sunrise period (phased registration) will take place in two phases each lasting two months.

The Sunrise Period will have two phases. During phase one, public bodies and holders of registered Community or national trademarks will be able to register their .eu domain name. During phase two, those who may register in phase 1 may register their .eu domains as well holders of other rights recognised under Community law or the national law of an EU member state. Eu domains registered during the sunrise period must be an exact match for the prior right claimed and documentary evidence must be supplied to prove the right.

Live Registration:

First come-first served basis. Some weeks after the Sunrise Period .eu domains goes live and general registrations of .eu domains will begin and registration will be done on a first come-first served basis for any .eu domain not taken during the sunrise period.

.eu Domain Name for All:

Only persons and companies in the European Union can register .eu domains. If you have no company in the European Union, you can still register an .eu domain name at http://www.domainregistry.de/eu.html. An European company will register your .eu domain name for you. The trustee confirms to each customer that the customer has the propriety and intellectual rights to the .eu domain name."
