.IE Domain Requirements: Individual

.IE Requirements: Individual

In order to purchase a .IE domain, you must prove your connection to Ireland with the .IE Registry.

If you have selected an Individual in the billing system while purchasing your .IE from smarthost.ie, you will need to provide one of the following documents as proof of your connection to Ireland: 

  • Irish passport 
  • Irish/UK driving license (showing Northern Ireland address)
  • Irish/Northern Irish bank statement showing an address in either Ireland or Northern Ireland
  • College ID from a college recognised by the Department of Education
  • Public Services Card
  • Correspondence from the Revenue Commission showing your PPS number

If you have purchased a .IE domain before, and wish to register the new .IE domain with the same owner details, you can confirm your existing .IE domain with your order which will make the process much quicker. 


If you have any questions, please feel free to get in touch with us by email at support@smarthost.ie or give us a call on (01) 901 9700.
