If a eu-domain is deleted by the owner or the provider of the owner, it is not longer active, but stays restorable.
The status of the deleted eu-domains is " in quarantine". The owner or
provider of the owner can restore the eu-domains.
If the eu-domain is not restored within 40 days, the domain is definetly deleted.
ICANN Registrar Secura is able to register eu-domains in quarantine in the moment of their final deletion.
This is a service for domain owners, who have lost their eu-domains by negligence or for interested parties seeking an interesting eu-domain.
