Brexit and .eu domain names


On the 21st December 2018, the UK Government issued advice for UK citizens owning .eu domains should there be a 'no deal' outcome to Brexit.

Many people think this may be more of the UK government and EU fearmongering that we're all aware of, but we think it is better to be safe than sorry and prepare for the worst-case scenario.

From our findings, it seems that UK citizens (or businesses without an EU presence) will NOT be allowed to use '.eu' domains. This is evidenced in this April 2018 statement from the European Commission.

Our recommendation to all the UK citizens and businesses that own a '.eu' domain is to prepare for the eventuality of having to change it.

All our thoughts and prayers - Manchester attack

The whole team at Media City Way would like to share their condolences to each and every person affected by the barbaric attack that happened yesterday night at the Manchester Arena.

We send our thoughts and prayers to the 22 people, including children that had their lives taken away and hope solace can be found by their families and friends as soon as possible.

In times like these the human race, communities and strangers show that they will not be divided or succumb to inhumane acts of terror.

Our hearts go out to each and everyone of you.
