International domain registration and IP protection
Irish .ie Domain Whois Information - .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 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 are forbidden from being registered. In April 2008 the number of registered .ie domains exceeded 100,000.
