What are Irish .IE domains - characteristics

Irish domains .IE are the main and very popular internet name extensions in the country of Ireland. The .IE domain is the national domain, which originated from the ISO code (IE, Ireland). The cost of registering one .IE domain name for one year is 56,50 GBP, plus any tax. Registration of .IE domains is difficult and usually takes 1 day. The registration time may be prolonged because there are additional requirements imposed by the .IE name registry on applicants wishing to register their domains in the .IE extension. With our Local Agent service for .IE domains, you can register these Irish domains practically without hindrance. For .IE domains, it is included in the registration price (at no extra cost). A trademark for the registration of .IE domains is recommended. Registered names in the .IE extension must be between 3 and 63 characters long and may not contain national characters (IDN). Unfortunately, usually all names in the .IE extension that have less than 4 characters are already taken or blocked by the name registry. The maximum registration period for a .IE domain at Intername is 10 years. The applicant for a .IE domain name receives SPAM protection for his or her email address from us, or optional all data protection via our Agent solution. The transfer of a .IE domain costs the same as its annual renewal, that is 56,50 £. By registering a .IE domain with Intername, you will be able to use our automatic domain renewal system or manually renew your domains from the domain management panel. You will be reminded of your upcoming domain renewal date by email and, in selected countries, also via SMS.
