Important Points To Note:

When you submit a registration request for a .ie domain name, you may be required to produce supporting information to validate your application. Usually, if your Company Number, Business Number or Community Trademark can be verified online no further documentation will be required.

Applicants based outside the Island of Ireland must be able to demonstrate a real and substantive connection to Ireland. Examples of acceptable documentation demonstrating trade activity within Ireland are as follows:

  • Copies of invoices (showing trade to or from Ireland),
  • High-quality brochures showing a significant intention to trade in Ireland.
  • A signed letter on headed paper from a bank manager, firm of chartered accountant(s), registered auditor(s), tax consultant(s) (where the tax advisor identification number is displayed), or solicitor(s) confirming the applicants trade with Ireland.

As per our Terms Of Service domain registration fee's are non refundable. Once an application is submitted to the Registry, you have 27 days to submit whatever supporting documentation is required. If your application expires you will need to contact us to resubmit the application.
