What is a .eus domain name?
A .eus domain name is a domain name that follows the rules of the Basque language. This means it has to be composed of at least one Basque letter, though it may be accompanied by Latin letters.
The same rule applies to particular vowels called "uki" (followed by an apostrophe). These vowels are, for example, what give names like "Iñaki" their beautiful sound.
The uki does not have to be included in .eus domain names but can make them more accessible for other people to use and remember if needed.
For example, if someone wanted to write about or talk about you - your company or personal website - they might find it hard without some guidance as many words end in "a."
If you own the .eus domain name iñaki.eus, they would know precisely how to spell it. When using these letters and/or uki, accents are also used.
For example, the word "Eusko" changes depending on which part of Basque Country you are writing about - "euskal," "euzkadi," "eusko."
The use of diacritic marks means that if someone sees a web address with or without them, they will understand where it is from. Accents also help differentiate between similar letter combinations like "ou"/"oe."
