A recent report by the IEDR found that 100 .ie domain names were registered everyday from January to June, bringing the total number of registrations to 217,374 – up almost 6% on last year!
78% of all .ie domains registered belong to corporate bodies and sole traders and of all new registrations, 40% were recorded in Dublin, 8% in Cork, 4% in Galway and 3% in Limerick. This steady growth of the .ie database shows not only an increase in the number of Irish businesses achieving an online presence, but also the recognition of .ie’s as a highly regarded domain.
David Curtin, Chief Exec of IEDR commented, ‘The continued overall growth of the .ie domain clearly demonstrates that an increasing number of businesses and individuals recognise the value of an authentic and trustworthy ‘Identifiably Irish’ brand.’
