Backlog and Delays With IE Registrations

traffic jam with sheep

There is currently a backlog of IE domain registration requests.

We are processing any requests that we receive and making amendments as quickly as possible, however we have to rely on the IE domain registry and their staff to process them.

At present there appears to be a backlog on their end, so we cannot do anything to speed up the process.

If you have applied for an IE domain please ensure that you send us all the relevant documentation as quickly as you can.

If the domain is going to be using someone else’s nameservers please make sure that they are properly configured in advance. You can check nameservers using tools like ZoneCheck

If you are in need of a domain in a hurry, why not register a .eu or a .co.uk domain?

    Hello (potential) .ie Registrants,
    There’s no need to opt for .eu or .com!
    As of mid-afternoon today there is no backlog for new registrations on the Blacknight account – so feel free to register your .ie domains now!

    Hi “Registration Services Team”,
    No need to opt for .eu maybe I don’t personally value them too highly but with the .com’s well hell if you can get them get them with blacknight its only what 6 ish quid. So get it if its available and secure your brand.

    @IEDR Staff
    Thanks for taking the time to comment.
    @James Registering your brand name in as many domain extensions as possible is always a good idea. It’s a lot cheaper than WIPO!
