I am a sole-trader who operates purely in the UK, and I also have a corresponding (dormant) Limited company on 'Companies House'. I have both .com and .co.uk suffixes. I also have .eu suffix, and would like to continue to protect it post-Brexit, as I do not want others taking advantage of my lack of cross-border priveleges and 'piggyback' my business name (which is same as my domain prefix). Up to now I do not have any direct links to the EU27.
As things currently stand, the EU plan to uni-laterally revoke .eu domain suffixes from non-eligible people/organizations. One possible option to protect the domain would be to set up a (dormant) limited company in Estonia, Rep. Ireland or any other low-cost but reliable member state. What significant obligations would accompany this? Are there any other inexpensive ways to protect the .eu domain name?
