Hi everyone,

I've registered my first .ie domain name today, but some of the requested information is a little confusing. I got an email asking if the domain is for commercial or non-commercial purposes.
I want it to be a kind of blog on a particular niche and if, at some point, it will have enough traffic, I want to pus some adsense banners and join some affiliate program.

If I state that the domain is for non commercial purpose (hobby) and in the future I earn money through various types of advertising, is there any risk?

Thank you.

Once the domain is registered you should be fine

If you are registering a "personal" domain you are going to be more limited in what you can register, though they've relaxed the rules a small bit recently
