Wexford ‘.IE’ Domain Registrations On The Rise

According to the latest report from .IE, Ireland’s country domain manager, Co. Wexford based businesses, organisations, clubs and individuals registered 1,678 .ie domains in 2021. This is a whopping 32% increase on pre-pandemic levels in 2019. Two of the most frequently used keywords for domain registration were ‘cleaning’ and ‘roofing’. On a wider level, 36,875 new .ie domains were registered in Leinster and 57,530 nationwide.

Government lockdown policies in 2021 and business adaptation are the chief drivers for this increase according to David Curtin – chief executive of .IE.

“Businesses in Wexford and across Ireland are investing in new websites, integrating e-commerce technology, and making use of productivity-enhancing tools all year round because they now recognise the huge role they play in profitability and customer acquisition,”

Cybersecurity was also mentioned in the report and it states that 54% of all .ie websites are secured with SSL / TLS.

Mr Curtin acknowledged that this figure was “encouraging” but stressed the importance for .ie domain holders to do as much as possible to protect their site visitors from cyberattacks.

“We urge all businesses in Wexford to review their cybersecurity in 2022.”

Do you feel the need …. the need for speed?

Page speed has always been important in web design. Back in the days of dial up, developers had to be very careful about how they laid out pages and used media, CSS and JavaScript. With the introduction of broadband over the last 20 years, internet speeds have increased to astronomical levels allowing developers to create more complex, media rich and engaging web pages.

However in that process, certain principles and disciplines were lost. It became acceptable to write inefficient & sloppy code. This went largely unpunished until recent times, but Google and other search engines are now placing much more emphasis on page speed in how it ranks your site in it’s search results.

ADCI Website Goes Live

The Amateur Drama Council of Ireland (ADCI) is a nationwide body that administers amateur drama festivals for the whole of the island of Ireland. The organisation was founded in 1952 and coordinates the Full-Length Drama Festival Circuit along with two All-Ireland Finals annually.

The organisation had a pre-existing website that served them well for many years that had lots of good information and resources available. It had become quite cluttered and difficult to navigate in recent times and we were delighted to ‘reboot’ the site with a brand new design and layout. One of the big challenges was the transfer of data from the old site to the new site. The old site had hundreds and hundreds of pages (e.g. results, league tables, festival information) that had to be carefully moved over to the new site and integrate with the new design. This was particularly challenging but we created the tools to allow us to import the relevant data safely.

Another feature that we integrated was a Facebook feed into the homepage and news pages. This pulls in the latest Facebook posts securely into the site meaning that the organisation doesn’t have to maintain a separate blog on the website for news items.

Some of the features include

  • Functional & beautiful website
  • Structured festivals layout by year and festival
  • Clearly laid out results tables
  • Facebook feed integration
  • Email
  • Content can be easily managed through the backend
  • Various reports and dashboards are available on the backend
  • Fully GDPR compliant
  • Comprehensive user manual provided

See the result here
