It doesn't have to relate exactly, so if you had that business you could get a domain name made up of any combination of the keywords without any extra paperwork

When the best hosting providers give this kind of advice you'd better take it onboard!

As stated earlier register a business name with the CRO. My understanding is that web applications are processed much faster than paper applications.

And as for .ie addresses, my advice would be to continue with it. They have several advantages over other extension TLDs.

Best of luck

Hi

i bought 3 .ie domains for personal use. I am now planning on developing them to make money. Do i need to inform them that i now wish to use these domains as a business?

And what type of company do most websites operate, a sole trader?

If you registered the domain(s) to yourself as a private individual and are now operating as a limited company then you probably should get them updated to the company.

I will be operating as a sole trader, will this make any difference?

Probably not, as there's no real line between an individual and a sole trader

With .ie there is a requirement to validate your connection as an Irish entity. This can be quite good once you have it but it does mean that you must supply the required documentation. If you are committed to your business long term then registering with CRO is something you will want to do anyway. Best advice is collect your documents and take the time to sort it out correctly. It will be worth it. Also check out http://gettingirishbusinessonline.ie/ its a great support for new business starting out. As an Irish business, if your customer base is Ireland then it will be worth the effort getting the .ie status. Good luck, hope this helps.

this is true really for your business in Ireland, even.co.uk can marginalise an irish consumer, but if all else fails, people are not that bothered if your .com or .ie, how good you run your business is the most important thing, because rank engine and search engine results will go up and down and this will effect profits

OP, HellFireClub is correct, it is ot hard, just register online, it costs 20 euro, you must also register with core.ie, when you pay online then within 24hours you will be able to access your RBN1 for in core and email it for your .ie address, it is really not that hard, also it only takes 24 hour for everything to be completed,

Write the provider of .ie domain a letter explaining all and that should cover it. I don't think they read them half the time anyway.

A .ie domain name is one of the hardest domains to get. But if you supply your hosting company with a business number from CRO (which costs 20 euro online) should have it within the week.

Hope that helps

A .ie domain is generally not at all difficult to get but it does take slightly more than handing over your credit card details.
