Am I guaranteed my .ie domain?
No, once your application is received it must be assessed by a member of our staff to see if it is correct. We must then check to see if all the correct documentation has been received. Once these are satisfactorily checked the application is submitted to the Irish Domain Registry(IEDR). Under IEDR rules, they award domains on a first come first served basis, however you must have the correct supporting documentation. Therefore it is critical to supply your documentation as quickly as possible.
The Irish Domain Registry(IEDR) have the final say in approving applications and are not obliged in any way to grant an application.
