Why choose a .ie Domain ahead of .com?

This is a question Webcraft Web Design have been asked on a no. of occasions and we believe opting for a .ie domain ahead of a .com makes a lot of sense for many local Irish businesses. 

I’ve listed a range of ways we believe choosing a .ie domain will benefit your business:

- Proves authenticity - In order to register a .ie domain you must prove that you are a registered business name or sole trader to claim ownership.

- Guarantees Irish connection – In order for your business to use .ie domain name you must prove a real and substantive connection to Ireland.

- Traceability - .ie can help to ensure that your customers know exactly who they are dealing with.

- Safety – .ie is one of the safest domains in the world, with lower rates of hacking and cybercrime than other domains.

- Availability – in comparison to .com, there is a higher chance that the domain name you want is still available with a .ie address.

- Search Engine Optimization – if a person uses a search engine extension that is based in Ireland (e.g. google.ie or yahoo.ie) there is a greater chance that your website will be listed on the first page of the results.

We hope you found this useful and as always if you have any questions or if there is anything else we can help you with, feel free to reach out to us at design@webcraft.ie
