Irish Registry Warns of “Internet Register Ireland” Scam

IEDR logoA company operating under the name “Internet Register Ireland” is contacting Irish businesses with .IE domain names by post and fax soliciting domain holders to register their domain name with them the registry for .IE domain names, IE Domain Registry (IEDR) has warned.

The notice from “Internet Register Ireland” requests you to fill out their form and return it to them signed. It should be noted that they charge an excessive fee of approx €958 for the registration of your domain name in their database. The “Internet Register Ireland” previously operated the same practice in Ireland in late November 2006 and has been operating similar schemes throughout Europe and Canada throughout the past year.

IEDR would like to reassure all .IE registrants that no such organisation has been authorised to act on behalf of the IEDR.
