Why Register a .IE Domain Name?

Your domain name says a lot about you or your business, so a .ie domain makes perfect sense if you’re based in Ireland. The .ie domain is one of the most secure domains in the World and tells the online community that you’re legitimate and based in Ireland.

How Google Views .IE Domains

.ie domain names are given priority by Google if the search being performed is either from Ireland or if the search query is about Ireland. Google can see that your presence is in Ireland.

.IE Domain Discounts

The domain discounts offered with our hosting packages applies to any .ie one year domain name registration purchased with hosting or a website builder. In fact with a website builder the domain is free. Offer does not apply to renewals.
