We have great news for those of you with a company name that is Irish and has a fada.

Irish websites will soon be able to put fadas into their URL as part of a new policy change. The IE Domain Registry (IEDR), the company that manages Ireland’s .ie domain names, will allow individuals and businesses to register their site using fadas.

The change means that anyone will be able to include á, é, í, ó and ú when typing in a URL.

The IEDR says the move will allow Irish language speakers to conduct their business, and other online activities, more effectively and allow those with Irish names like businesses and government departments to obtain a domain name that reflects their activities.

More information will be available along with how you can register a fada domain name and its pricing after the public consultation is completed.
