The Estonian Internet Foundation is the organisation founded by the Government of the Republic of Estonia and the Estonian Association of Information Technology and Telecommunications with the purpose of management of Estonian top-level domain names (.ee). Domain rules and fees applicable to .ee, pri.ee, com.ee, fie.ee and med.ee are approved subject to consensus by the six-member Council of the Estonian Internet Foundation. Half of the council members are appointed by the Estonian Association of Information Technology and Telecommunications and half – by the government.
.ee's website has been updated with new guidelines! You can information on EIS' Data Protection Policy here and domain search WHOIS Terms and Conditions here. Registrars can find .ee's Guidelines on processing of personal data here. Should you have any questions, please contact us by e-mail email@example.com or by calling +372 727 1000.
.ee will update the Domain Regulation due to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) entering into force on the 25 May 2018. .ee Domain Regulation provides standard terms that regulate the legal relationship between the EIF, domain registrant and registrar (service provider). Main changes concern the WHOIS-service in which the contact information of a registrant who is a natural person can no longer be publicly disclosed.
The Estonian Internet Foundation has received multiple complaints from .ee domain registrants concerning the registration service provided by Beehosting OÜ, assuming that the company is an accredited .ee registrar. While third persons are not prohibited from selling .ee domains, the Foundation can only help users if the company concerned is an accredited .ee registrar.
