Estonian Internet Foundation accepted as full member of CENTR
Participants in the General Assembly of the CENTR included leaders of organisations engaged in the national Internet and domain business as well as representatives of the European Commission and the ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers). Items on the agenda concerned removal from the register of domains violating law and issues relating to Internet security, incl. DNSSEC.
The CENTR provides a platform for national domain organisations of European countries to discuss issues relating to Internet policy and formulate common positions for the European Commission as well as to exchange the best practices in the field of service development and security.

.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.
