Extension rules .ie
.ie domain life cycle
.ie domains permit characters from 'a' to 'z', numbers from '0' to '9' and hyphens '-'.
A hyphen '-' is not permitted in the first or last position of the domain name.
Two consecutive hyphens are not permitted in the 3rd and 4th position.
If the owner is a private person, it needs to reside in Ireland. But companies can register .IE domains without residency requirements.
.IE domains require the DNS to be active on different subnets and to be authoritative for the domain at the time of registration. You can check if they pass these minimum requirements using our Zone Check tool.
.ie domain registrations aren't immediate.
Average duration of the registration process: 5-7 days
To complete .IE domain transfer, you'll need your current registrar to provide you the domain's AuthCode or EPP-Key to verify the ownership of the domain.
Transfers can take between 5 and 7 days to complete. Some registrars provide manual transfers allowing transfers to be completed on the same day, contact your current registrar to find out if they offer this service.
The domains, once the transfer ends, extend they expiration date for one year
.IE domains have to be renewed 6 weeks prior to their expiration date, once this time has passed we cannot guarantee the domain renewal.
It's possible to request a cancellation of your .IE domain, visit the support center to open a support ticket. Please note, cancelling a name does not provide a refund of any registration fees.
DNS modification is immediate, please note they must propagate through the network, this process can take up to 6-12 hours to complete, until then the domain will still point to the previous DNS servers.
We allow the usage of DNSSEC on .ie domains. Your domain can take advantage of this additional security layer that DNS servers that are compatible with this technology can provide.
More information is available at: What is DNSSEC and how does it work

Unfortunately it's not possible to make ownership changes in this type of domain names.
