Why does your company need a .ie domain?
If you start your own business, you probably need a website at the very beginning of your journey. Entrepreneurs can be overwhelmed by the domain options available to them – .com, .org, and so on. – But if you have a business in Ireland, a .ie domain is the logical choice for many reasons, writes David Curtin of IEDR.
Why should you get a .ie domain?
With a .ie domain name, you can put your website online or configure a personalized e-mail address.
.ie is the official internet address of Ireland and the only guaranteed domain name in Ireland. All .ie websites have demonstrated that they have a connection in Ireland and a valid domain name claim.
Trust is traceability, and a .ie file can ensure that anyone who interacts with you online knows exactly who they are dealing with.
According to McAfee online security experts, domains are consistently ranked among the five most secure security domains in the world
.ie tells the world community that you are Irish and the Irish Community that you are local.
.ie is the right choice for Irish companies
Every .ie domain name is checked to make sure that the people behind it are what it claims. This means that .ie is one of the safest areas in the world, protected from potential threats such as cybercrime and fraud.
Let your customers find you online with .ie
Geographical targeting and prioritization of local search results automatically rank .ie domains higher than .com addresses in search engines based in Ireland. For example, Google.com. When you do business in Ireland, it makes sense for your customers to find you quickly and easily.
Protect your brand
Registering a .ie domain can also help protect your brand. Once you’ve verified your domain name and connection to Ireland, your .ie domain name will be registered for you and only for you. This is different from .com, where anyone can register a domain, and it is likely that your name has already been registered. .Id domains are readily available and can only be registered by persons with a legitimate naming right.
