.irish is a new generic top-level domain (gTLD). The rights to run the domain were applied for in June 2012 by Dot-Irish LLC, a for-profit company in California, United States.[1] as part of an expansion of generic top-level domains by ICANN. The application was successful,[2] and the domain opened for registrations on 17 March 2015, with public registration opened on 25 June 2015.[3]

The average cost of a .irish domain is €16.48,[4] which is 33% cheaper than the average cost of a .ie domain (€24.95).[5]

Number of registered domains[edit]

On 5 May 2016, there were 2,142 registered .irish domain names.[6]
