EURid, the official .eu tld registry, will begin this summer an advertising campaign intended to promote the use of its extension.The principle: show what the registrants are doing with their .eu .To achieve this goal, EURid will send soon to all their registrants a proposal to promote their Internet website. It will be turned in a survey-like:"Tell us how you use your .eu and we will promote it for you..."The hidden purpose is, of course, to bring a fresh air into the life of this extension.Everyone remember the Sunrise periods fiasco and how they were followed by a long period of complaints and law suits.EURid would certainly like to motivate new registrants to go in and draw a new image of this tld.This campaign will begin in Belgium and Czech Republic in July 2007."Winners" will see their testimonials printed on real banners. They will be exposed in the Luxemburg train station in Brussels, a place crossed by thousands of users coming from all Europe. .eu users, show your faces now ! ;)

I think .eu is a not a very useful domain. I registered and parked a few durring the land rush, don't know what to do with them. I am also yet to see any serious site using .eu

Wish them well, they lost all credibility in my eye when I applied to register one of my domain name which was trademarked in UK, they said that was not enough to award me the domain but they let a carpet bagger register the domain name.

I can see a use for .EU domains. Any organisation or company that is europe wide and not specific to a country in Europe would be well placed on an .EU domain. Unfornuatly I cannot think of any europe wide companies so its probably just another waste of time IMHO!

We have tickeverybox registered as a .com co.uk and eu.

The company that helped build the site said it would be a good idea to do this. However I have seen no benefit so far.

The advice the company that build the site gave you is okay, its usually better to sure one's domain name extension so that some else will not register it and try to pass off as you.
But in terms of traffic or EU exposure, its completely useless.
