Secure an Irish .ie domain name for your company or for personal use before someone else does.
Why Choose an IE Domain?
Whether for business or personal use, Irish residents may benefit from having a bespoke .ie domain name. It can be reassuring for clients to expect a local service. Furthermore, a .ie domain name can help you rank higher in Google search engine results, specifically in Irish searches. With just over 300,000 .ie domain names registered, you’re also likely to get the website name you want.
Can I Register An IE Domain Name?
In the past, it was more difficult to register a .ie domain name – You had to prove your connection to Ireland and also to the domain, which involved faxing a letter explaining how the specific domain relates to you or your business. Thankfully, due to the modernisation and liberalisation of the registration process and the .IE Registry policies, it is now very straight forward to register a .ie domain name. You simply need to show your connection to Ireland.
What Documentation Is Required For An IE Name?
To secure an exclusive Irish domain name, you will need to show your connection to Ireland.
This can be achieved through documentation such as; a registered business number, VAT number, or copy of your driver’s licence or passport.
Copies of invoices (showing Irish trade) or a signed headed letter from a certified professional, such as a solicitor or bank manager, to confirm your trade with Ireland is also acceptable.
Online Advantages To A .ie Domain
As well as helping your business stand out, having a .ie domain name shows that you have an instant connection with Ireland.
There are further advantages for online business, since Google prioritises .ie domain names when local searches are carried out. This may help the chances of your ie domain being found by potential customers.
