August 12, 2005 - (HOSTSEARCH.COM) - Domain Registrar Tucows announced that it has received accreditation from EurID, operator of the .EU registry, to provide its network of global service providers with access to resell .EU, the official domain name of the European Community.
"Tucows works with many of the leading European service providers to provide domain registration and other services in every country in the European Union except Latvia. Becoming a fully accredited registrar of .EU reinforces our commitment to the European market," comments Elliot Noss, president of Tucows.
Tucows is currently accredited with a number of European national registries and provides wholesale domain name registration services for .UK (United Kingdom), .DE (Germany), .IT (Italy), .NL (Netherlands), .FR (France), .BE (Belgium), .AT (Austria) and .CH (Switzerland). It plans to add .ES (Spain), .DK (Denmark) and .PL (Poland) to its inventory of country code domain names it is authorized to sell.
Tucows will be prepared to offer the .EU domain name at the time of the registry's pre-launch period in late 2005.
