From today’s Least Surprising News Department: was the most-requested domain on opening day of the European Union’s registration for .eu domains.

The next most popular were,,,,,,, and came in a disappointing 11th.

The EU received from than 100,000 domain registration applications – 45,000 within the first 20 minutes. Wonder what servers they were running? Germans were No. 1 in the gimme-gimmes, filing nearly 35,000 applications.

We just hope the EU remembered to save for itself.
