According to Australian IT; the ‘.eu’ domain, which the European Union created, has topped 2.5 million domains after launching. Many companies are switching to the new .eu domain, including Sony.
As well, according to the source, it is the 7th most popular suffix and 3rd for Europe. It was only beaten by Germany’s ‘.de’ and Britain’s ‘.uk’. Most of the ‘.eu’ registrations came from Germany, then followed by The Netherlands and Britain.
