Understanding .EU Domain Name Contacts

  • A .EU domain name displays only three Contacts (there is no Administrative Contact) when performing a Whois lookup:

    • Registrant Contact: This Contact represents the owner of the domain name.

    • Onsite Contact: This Contact is equivalent to the Technical Contact shown in all other domain names (other than .EU like .COM, .NET, .ORG, etc.). The .EU Registry allows the creation of a single Onsite Contact for all domain names registered through any Registrar. Therefore, this Contact can not be modified through the Verve Logic system.

    • Billing Contact: The .EU Registry allows the creation of a single Billing Contact for all domain names registered through any Registrar. Therefore, this Contact can not be modified through the Verve Logic system.

  • General Contacts used for other domain name extensions (TLDs) can not be used for a .EU domain name. It has a separate Contacts database, consisting of .EU Registrant Contact(s).

  • While mentioning your Contact information, you need to select the appropriate Registrant Type:

    • Individual: Upon selecting this option, you will prompted for only your Name. In the Whois of your .EU domain name(s), only your Name will be displayed as the Registrant Contact.

    • Company/Organization: Upon selecting this option, you will be prompted for both your Company Name as well as your Name. In the Whois of your .EU domain name(s), both your Company Name as well as your Name will be displayed as the Registrant Contact.
