The excuses to not register your business with a distinctly Irish domain are getting fewer while the benefits are increasing.
This move by the IEDR aims to make it even easier to get your business online and avail of the trustworthy, localised .ie domain name that will help you get found online.
All you need is a connection to our island. Time to get registering.
A PUBLIC CONSULTATION has launched on whether to change the rules for how people are able to register .ie websites. Currently, an applicant seeking to have a website with .ie at the end must prove they have a valid claim to the desired name and a real, tangible connection to Ireland. The IE Domain Registry (IEDR) wants to change this rule and make it that an applicant only has to prove a connection to Ireland. The IEDR said that registering a .ie address will be easier and faster. One of .ie’s greatest values is that it is ‘identifiably Irish’. A business with a .ie address is immediately authentic, trustworthy and familiar. As of 30 June 2017, there were 230,611 .ie domain names registered in the IEDR database. In the first half of this year alone, 20,255 new domains were registered.
