Irish Website Statistics 2020 are looking great!
The Covid-19 pandemic has had a noticeable effect on new .ie registrations in the first six months of 2020, which are up 26% YoY. Over 40% of new registrations on the island of Ireland occurred in the two months of May and June, as businesses responded with online services, following the Government’s ‘work from home’ order which closed most of the country’s business premises. Overall new registrations in Ireland during Q2 2020 increased 56% YoY.
There were 295,794 .ie domains in the database at the end of H1 2020, an 8% increase on the same period last year. The database has grown 44% on the same period five years ago (H1 2015).
The majority of .ie domains in the database were companies and self-employed business owners (78%). The .ie domain remains the domain of choice for Irish businesses that want to prove to their local and international customers that they have a real connection to Ireland.
.ie domains now account for 50.7% of all hosted domains in Ireland, up 1.5 points year-on-year, followed by 32.6% for .com, the main competitor.
