What will a .ie mean for You?
Guaranteed Irish connection – to have a .ie domain name you must prove a real and substantive connection to Ireland.
Confidence comes with traceability and a .ie can help to ensure that your customers know exactly who they are dealing with.
Safety – .ie is one of the safest domains in the world, with lower instances of cyber crime and cyber squatting than other domains.
Choose a .ie instead of a .com because you will:
Protect your brand -in 2013 .com had thousands of domain name dispute claims filed, .ie had seven.
Beat the odds – there is a good chance that the domain name you want is still available with a .ie address, chances are a .com has already been registered with the name you want.
Ensure your customers find you – if a person uses a search engine extension that is based in Ireland (e.g. google.ie) there is a greater chance that your website will be listed on the first page of the results.
Currently, All applicants applying for a .ie domain name must demonstrate a Real and Substantive Connection with Ireland
From March 2018, the need to explain why you want a .ie domain name will be removed.
