We couldn’t think of a more perfect way to celebrate the ground breaking on a local Irish data centre than by promoting .IE domains.” .IE has a market share of 42% in Ireland and .IE domains have become a strong staple of Irish Internet culture. As the leading registrar for .IE domains, Blacknight intend to continue to strengthen the relationship between the domain and its Irish registrants. Neylon continues: “We are a proud, Irish business and have made it our mission to help other Irish businesses establish an online identity.

We are heavily committed to investing in the Irish economy and want to provide others with the tools to do the same.” To take advantage of these promotions, customers must order 1 year of hosting and the domain name simultaneously as these offers only apply to domain name registrations and transfers when ordered at the same time as an annual hosting plan.
