My .eu domain name is in quarantine. What does this mean?
A .eu domain name spends 40 days in quarantine once it has been deleted. This means that while the domain name is not available to the general public to register, it is also no longer in the possession of its former owner. The new “quarantined” status of the name is reflected in the WHOIS database
and the date of its release is also published so that other parties having an interest in the name know when they can attempt to register it again.
