[At-Large] A brexit problem that I heard about

Sorry, but what on earth do you mean?

If I have all my headed paper, business cards etc etc using a .eu domain name and I move to another domain extension I lose all that *if* the .eu domain name is either deleted, suspended or simply registered to someone else.

It’s very different to a simple rebranding exercise where you retain control of the original domain name and can setup pointers, redirects etc.,
For example we used to use blacknight.ie for our website and email. We don’t anymore, but you’d never notice as we still retain control of the domain.

Dear Theo Geurts,

The alternatives are very limited as privacy or proxy registrations are
a violation of the registry agreement if I am correct.

One alternative solution that would mitigate the hardships for at least a few of the 300k .EU (and the registrants other gTLD and ccTLD registries that may in future decide for one compelling reason or another to drop some domains) could arise from the Domain management services (which in this case, in this or expanded technical capacity, is Google) who could make it possible for these users to migrate to another domain name of their choice.

The latest news and info can be located here;
We are talking around 300k .EU registrations for possible deletion.
