Irish Registry Domain to make Web Addresses showing Fadas a reality
Organizations and businesses in Ireland will very soon be able to register Irish Web addresses with fadas. This will change will enable Irish businesses using the .ie domain to also include any fadas contained in their names. Effectively, we will see Irish websites’ URLs with the fada included. That is, if their domain is an Irish name or word.
The fada is the acute accent or diacritic above all Irish vowels: á, é, í, ó and ú.
Recently, the IE Domain Registry, responsible for the administration of Ireland’s official Internet address .ie, has begun a consultation process to allow users to share their views about how the system should operate.
The registry will launch details of how people can register the fada domain names after the 21st of March.
We will be on the lookout for any domains using their fadas.
