Our Policies

As the body responsible for the management of the IE namespace, the IE Domain Registry (IEDR) has adopted a range of policies and rules relevant to Registrants, Registrars, or interested third parties. These policies, as well as the related procedures for providing a connection to Ireland and claim to the desired .ie domain name, are set out below.

All .ie domain registrations must adhere to our specific naming and registration policies. If you have a policy query that is not answered in our FAQs or elsewhere on this site you can review our specific policies in detail at the below links.

Our Policy Development Process (PDP) will give you an insight into how our policies are currently developed, using a bottom-up, consensus-driven and consultation-based approach.
