The IE Domain Registry (IEDR) is responsible for the management and administration of Ireland’s official Internet address .ie, in the interest of the Irish and global Internet communities. The .ie domain name, has consistently been ranked one of the world’s top 5 safest domains.
The IE Domain Registry (IEDR) operates the registry for all Internet domain names ending in .ie.
For over 10 years the IEDR has provided registration services and security to Ireland’s online community. The IEDR operates the domain name system (DNS) for the .ie namespace, facilitates a dispute resolution service and operates a public ‘Whois’ lookup service for .ie domains.
The DNS is one of the most important systems on the Internet as it provides the means to map easy-to-remember Internet addresses (such as www.iedr.ie) to cumbersome IP addresses (184.108.40.206).
The .ie namespace is consistently ranked in the top five safest domains worldwide by McAfee and offers Irish businesses and consumers the benefits of a secure e-business platform with minimal risks of cybercrime. By choosing a .ie domain you are guaranteeing that your website has a connection with Ireland, consumers know your are who you say you are and that anybody who visits your site can do so safely and securely.
