Yes, this is exactly my point, not everybody wants to do this.SlitheryImp said:But why do you need an alternative? getting a .IE domain is simple.
- Download the RBN1 Form (http://www.cro.ie/template_form_details.asp?DID=64&ID=23&Level1=7&Level2=2&Level3=0&Level4=0&Level5=0)
- Fill it out and walk into the CRO office (Parnell Square, Dublin)
- Pay 40 euros and you're done
Alternatively, you can register online (you only need your PPS no.), fill out the form, print it, sign it and send it in with a payment of 20 euros.
And then register the company name as a domain.
Done... It couldn't be easier... Well, it could, but then we'd have the same kind of problems that .com's have
Here’s one thing that could be easier;
Log on to .irl >> fill in form >> pay approx 10 bucks >> have full control of your DNS/Nameservers for that tld. (3 to 5 minutes max)
