The Basques (Basque: euskaldunak, Spanish: vascos, French: basques) as an ethnic group, primarily inhabit an area traditionally known as the Basque Country (Basque: Euskal Herria), a region that is located around the western end of the Pyrenees on the coast of the Bay of Biscay and straddles parts of north-central Spain and south-western France. The Basques are known in the local languages as Euskaldunak ("Basque speakers", also used loosely to describe all ethnic Basques), euskal herritarrak ("natives of the Basque Country") or euskotarrak ("natives of the Basque Country", an often mentioned but rarely used neologism) in Basque. That is why, when selecting a Top Level Domain to serve the Basque community, the string .EUS was selected, since the word Euskaldunak refers to Basque speakers in the local language.

The purpose of the .EUS Top Level Domain is to provide a namesspace for individuals and organizations with a bona fide interest in the Basque linguistic and cultural community. Domain names within the .EUS Top Level Domain should be used for the purpose of online communications in Basque and⁄or should be related to the Basque culture. After domain names generally become available for purchase, no pre-registration check will be performed, however, domains within the .EUS Top Level Domain will be monitored for compliance with .EUS goals and requirements.

Pre-register for your domain name within the .EUS Top Level Domain today. Pre-registrations are free and non-binding.
