The IEDR is the registry for .ie Internet Domain Names and maintains the database of .ie registered Internet names. The IEDR (www.iedr.ie) is an independent not-for-profit organisation that manages the .ie country code Top Level Domain (ccTLD) namespace in the public interest of the Irish and global Internet communities.
Since .IE enables you to protect your business online, a domain with .IE makes your web address unique and easy to memorize. A .IE extension is doing much more, helping you reach and communicate with the audience in Ireland.
Companies worldwide are allowed to register .IE Domains. However in order to register, applicants must provide certain supporting information:
1. If the applicant based in Ireland: An Irish Company Number or an Irish Trademark number must be submitted to the IE Domain Registry.
2. If the applicant based in the UK: A Company number or UK Trademark number and information showing that the company\'s has a connection to Ireland must be submitted to the IE Domain Registry. Copies of one or more invoices showing a trade connection with Ireland will be sufficient to show a connection to Ireland.
3. If the applicant based outside of Ireland and the UK: A Company Certificate or Trademark Certificate and Information showing that the company\'s has a trade Connection with Ireland must be submitted to the IE Domain Registry. Copies of one or more invoices showing a trade connection with Ireland will be sufficient to show a connection to Ireland.
There is no limitation on quantities of domains that can be registered, but if the name selection is not linked to a trademark or a company name, the choice must be convincingly explained to the Registry in the form of a detailed letter.
Explicit / immoral domains and domains that reflect Irish geographical place names are not authorized and will be rejected by the registry.
The IE Domain Registry policies apply to every registration and all applicants must provide the necessary supporting information or documentation within 30 days of your order in order for your application to be accepted.
