Irish websites grow
THE number of companies taking a dot.ie address for their websites increased in 2011, new figures show.
The IE Domain Registry (IEDR) -- the body which manages registration for Irish internet addresses -- has reported a 12.9pc increase in registrations for 2011.
While the growth rate was pretty much the same as for 2010, in percentage terms, it boosts the number of websites with a dot.ie address to 173,145, up from 153,419 at the end of 2010.
David Curtin, IEDR chief executive, expressed satisfaction at the continued growth, despite challenging times for Irish businesses.
