THERE were 586 new .ie domains were registered in Kerry in the first half of 2018, according to the latest Domain Profile Report published today by the IE Domain Registry, the company that manages and maintains Ireland’s official country domain name, .ie.

The figure is a 48% year-on-year increase. Overall new .ie domain registrations in Munster in H1 2018 numbered 4,936, a 28% year-on-year increase.

David Curtin, CEO: “Growth of .ie in regional parts of Ireland is a fantastic example of how the internet can help businesses overcome traditional barriers to growth. The increase in registrations in Kerry and in Munster during this period is good news, as increased online activity among businesses is a leading indicator of Ireland’s broader economic growth.”

Nationally, .ie domain registrations grew by 39% year-on-year to 28,126, bringing the total .ie domain database to 252,222 at the end of H1 2018.  The majority (62.5%), of new .ie domains were registered by businesses (including corporate bodies and sole traders).
