Our Policies

As the body responsible for the management of the .ie namespace, we have 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, 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 in the links below:

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.
