Why is it cheaper to get a .com domain name compared to a .ie domain? are there any benefit to a .ie domains?

Thanks

Hi Sean,

Thats a good question, the IEDR who manage all .ie registrations in Ireland charge more for .ie domains, so sadly resellers like ourselves have to charge more for these domains. There is also a lot of administration & paperwork involved in managing these domains which puts up costs.

That said there are a lot of big advantages to having a .ie domain, for example search engines like Google will gives .ie sites better ranking for people searching in Ireland. Also there is a much greater choice of .ie domains available. Let us know if you have any other questions.
Thanks
