N.B. When registering a .ie domain there is supporting information required. Please take a few minutes to read our .ie registration guide below and find out what supporting information you may need to submit.
IMPORTANT NOTE: All applicants applying to register a .ie domain name and are not located in the 32 counties of Ireland, must be able to prove a Genuine and Substantive Connection with Ireland (those applying with a registered Community Trademark are exempt from this)
Examples of acceptable documents to prove a commercial connection with Ireland would be:
Invoice copies showing evidence of trade to or from Ireland
High-quality brochure, Web site or other promotional material
A signed letter on headed paper from a bank manager, chartered accountant(s), registered auditor(s), tax consultant(s) (where the tax advisor identification number is displayed), or law firm/solicitor(s) stating the applicants trade with Ireland.
The Registered Trademark number (Irish, Community, British or American only) should be supplied in the remarks field of the application form. All other Trademark holders must forward a copy of the Trademark certificate.
Documentation confirming the applicant is the owner of the publication e.g. A faxed copy of a page from the publication where the writer or publishers name is clearly shown. In the case of online publications, simply provide the link to the online publication.
If the Educational Institute is recognised by the Department of Education then no supporting documentation is required. If it is not recognised then a letter on the applicants headed paper will suffice.
A detailed letter from the applicant outlining their claim to register the .ie domain must be forwarded. If the applicant is a registered company or has a registered business name, the registered numbers should be within the letter.
