I am a Norwegian citizen and do not have any address in any EU country. Norway is not a part of the EU union yet. However I hope Norway will be a EU member in the future.
I am desperate to secure my business name with the .eu TLD, but that require that I have a address in a EU country.
I do not have any friends/contacts in EU, if so I could register the .eu domain in my friends name, but that is not possible then.
So, what are my alternatives?
Some registrars offers to register .eu domains in their name and address, but I just don't feel that is safe? Also I am a ETP direct reseller at Enom, and would like to register the domain with Enom and not any other registrar.
I have been searching a lot for "virtual office" in Europe, thinking that I might get a Europe address that way, and have them forward postal email to me. Is this how everybody else is doing it? However I don't think it is legal to register a .eu domain in my name with a "virtual office" address, because I am not a resident at that address?
I know I can register a Ltd company in EU, but that will create a lot of extra work and expenses for me.
Have you registered a .eu domain name without being a resident in a EU country? How did you do it? Thanks!
