EURid Pre-Registration Warning

EURid, the registry selected to operate the soon-to-arrive .eu domain, warns of spam emails from a company that claims to have "taken the liberty to pre-register your .eu name"

We have received a number of complaints from people who have received unsolicited (spam) emails in which the sender claims to have pre-registered their .eu domain name on their behalf. Please note that there are no accredited .eu registrars at this time and it is not possible to pre-register a .eu name with us. Such pre-registrations sit only in the database of the provider offering the service and have no official status with the .eu registry. Over the coming months, we will accredit a network of .eu registrars across Europe and publish a list on our web site. You will need to contact one of those registrars in order to obtain your .eu name.

Still on the horizon (due for completion in 2005) by way of operational requirements:
  1. Official notification of the public policy rules and principles to the selected Registry for implementation (Article 5.1 of the Regulation).
  2. Notification of the designation of the Registry to ICANN and start of the delegation process of the .eu TLD to the Registry by ICANN.
  3. Establishment of the registration policy by the Registry in consultation with the Commission and interested parties.
  4. Completion of the delegation process with ICANN.
  5. Adoption of the procedure for accreditation and accreditation of Registrars by the .eu Registry
  6. Implementation of the sunrise period subject to the public policy adopted (Article 5.1.b of the Regulation)
  7. Implementation of the extra-judicial settlement of conflicts policy and procedure subject to the public policy adopted (Articles 5.1 and 4.2.d of the Regulation)
  8. Registry can start processing applications for names made via registrars.
