Add Properties

!!Take note!! Information added as additional properties have to match the contact information submitted in the contact handle you're adding the properties to, otherwise, registration will fail.

For .IE, some specific conditions apply that will determine whether the registrant is able to actually register a .IE domain or not. In most cases, if the registrant is not an Irish resident or company, verification of identity and proof of trade in or to Ireland is requested by the registry. Once you request registration, support will get in touch with a request to provide the necessary documents.

In order to add properties for .IE domains to a contact, follow the procedure below.

  • Lookup the contact you wish to add the properties to and open it. Next, you're going to add additional properties to the contact. In this case, you will choose the .IE(RegistryIE) option.Once you've selected the .IE properties, you'll be directed to the page where you can submit the requested information.
  • Fill out the data as requested by the form and click save properties when you're done.

Take note: Add properties that are applicable to the type of registrant. If the data is incorrect or non-existent, registrations and transfers will fail. For example; In cases of registration based on a trademark license, you submit the trademark number. If the registrant has no active trademark license, you do not submit any information in the trademark field at all.

  1. .IE Trademark type: Choose the trademark type if applicable
  2. Company reg. number: If applicable, submit the co-operation number here.
  3. Trademark name: If applicable, submit the trademark name here.
  4. .IE registration basis: Select the basis of registration the registrant wishes to use. (For more information on which registrants are entitled to register .IE domains and which documents are necessary to provide, check the registry website). For each basis of registration, documents have to be provided to the registry:
  • Copies of invoices showing trade to Ireland: Provide copies of invoices from the registrant that prove trade with Ireland. (In case of natural persons a utility bill will suffice).
  • Domain name based on trademark: Provide all corresponding documents that proof ownership of the trademark the domain is being registered under.
  • High quality brochures showing a significant intention to trade in Ireland: Provide the brochure.

Take note: All documents will need to be verified by the registry. In addition, the registry will have to verify the registrant Identity as well. To this end, the registry might request identity documents from natural persons and always requests a trade register excerpt if the registrant is a company entitled to register. Provide all documents to support@realtimeregister.com as soon as registerations/trades are requested.

  1. Trademark number: Provide the trademark number if applicable.
