Eligibility Requirements

To register and renew a .eus domain name, You must be an individual
or corporate entity with a nexus to the .eus community at the time of
registration and thereafter.

Registrations under the .eus TLD are restricted to those fulfilling these
two requirements:

a. bona-fide membership of the Basque linguistic and cultural
community on the Internet. The community consists of those who
use (or commit to use) the Basque language for their online
communications, and⁄or promote the different aspects of Basque
culture online, and⁄or intend to specifically address their online
communications and services to that community.

b. subject to the further requirement that the registrant’s actions in
the Basque linguistic and cultural community, as well as the
registrant’s use of the registered domain name, must be:

and cultural community; and commensurate with the role and importance of the
registered domain name; and
• in good faith at the time of registration and thereafter.

domain name. A false statement of intended use is an indication of
bad faith and can be the basis for the suspension of the domain name.

applicable to You. Community nexus is subject to post-validation by
way of an extensive compliance program based on the same criteria
