Hi!
probably has been already discussed but I can't find the thread so I just ask a question:

what would be the advantage to have a .eu domain name? is it something you would suggest to have or not?

thanks

Geotargeting strategies come to mind: .eu domain hosted in a .eu country might gain some traffic in localized search.

Pretty big local, though. :)
