Do I need a .ie domain
Saturday 25th, May 2013
The .ie domain name is Ireland's national website address. By choosing .ie instantly shows that you have a connection with Ireland and also an authenticated claim to the specific domain name you choose through the CRO..
So what will a .ie mean for me?
- Guaranteed Irish - to have a .ie domain name you must prove a real and substantive connection to Ireland.
- Confidence comes with guarantees and a .ie can help to ensure that your customers know exactly who they are dealing with.
- Safety - .ie are the 2nd 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:
- Show that you are Irish - .coms could be from anywhere and registered by anybody.
- Protect your brand -in 2009 .com had thousands of domain name dispute claims filed, .ie had six.
- 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.
