.uk says goodbye to .eu

Looks like it’s time I update my European Union map, removing a key country code:

eu

Brexit underscores a point I’ve made over the years — that country codes are more relevant to users than regional domains, namely .eu.

A number of companies use .eu to support regional websites, but Brexit illustrates the inherent risks. A safer approach is to register country codes and support more targeted websites.

These are interesting times.
