Irish .ie Domain Registration - .ie is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for the Republic of Ireland. The .ie domain was managed by University College, Dublin, Dublin, since its delegation from Jon Postel in 1989, until the creation of IE Domain Registry (IEDR) in 2000; the university is still the IANA Sponsoring Organization. Registration policies have been liberalised somewhat in recent years and rules such as the one against registering generic domain names have been dropped. The .ie ccTLD is operated on a managed registry basis by IEDR. The retail cost of a .ie domain can be anywhere from €50 to &euro200, a great deal more than a domain in a TLD such as .com or .net. The normal way of registering a .ie domain is via a .ie Reseller though it is possible to register a domain directly through IEDR. There is no official second level domain policy yet. The Irish Government uses subdomains of the gov.ie domain for many of its websites but each government department now has its own .ie domain. A number of domain names, typically those of other TLDs, two letter domains and potentially offensive domains (such as porn.ie) are forbidden from being registered. In April 2008 the number of registered .ie domains exceeded 100,000.

Irish .ie Premium Names

Some registries make additional revenue by charging for domains they deemed more valuable. Because of this sometimes we cannot not be totally sure of the price before purchase. If you request a .ie and we discover the domain is a premium domain we will ensure that we contact you before completing your order.

Irish .ie Reserved Names

Domains are often reserved for future use and as such can cause false positives when searching for a domain. For example the domain may appear to be free and not in use, but in reality the domain name is reserved. The Irish registry along with many other registry does this from time to time. If you request a reserved name we will not be able to register it for you but will refund your application fee in full.

Irish .ie Terms:

Irish domain names are sold subject to the .ie Registry Terms.
