Do I need to be living in Ireland to register a .ie domain?

It is possible to register a .ie domain name to a business not located in Ireland, but that business must be able to show their connection to Ireland. This can be done by providing a copy of an invoice issued by the business to an Irish address.

To register a .ie domain name, you can place an order <on our website and when asked to show your connection to Ireland, select the second option A business (LTD company, RBN Sole trader).


After your order goes through, you will receive an email asking for one of the following:

- Sales invoices showing that the business sells goods or services in the island of Ireland

- Signed letter from a third-party solicitor, accountant, bank manager or auditor, confirming that the business is selling goods or services in the island of Ireland

- Irish or EU Community Trademark number or certificate

- WIPO Trademark number or certificate (if enforceable in Ireland)


You may also need to provide the admin contact details (name, address, phone number and email address) for a director/staff member of the business.

If you have any questions on this, please feel free to drop our Sales team a message and they will be happy to advise from there.
