Sponsor Announcement – IE Domain Registry

October 2nd, 2019

Sponsor Announcement – IE Domain Registry – proud sponsor of Best Website.

The Spider awards are delighted to welcome IE Domain Registry as our category sponsor of the Best Website for this year’s awards.

IE Domain Registry is the national registry for .ie domain names and aims to provide unique, identifiably Irish domain names, along with registry and related services to the local internet community. Currently, there are over 273,000 registered .ie domain names. Over 51,000 new registrations were added in 2018 by Irish residents and Irish business owners. The company is committed to being a digital advocate for the SME community.

Commenting on their involvement this year they said:

‘IE Domain Registry is delighted to sponsor the 2019 Spiders Awards and the ‘Best Website’ category. We are a digital advocate for the SME community and we are committed to supporting them to improve their online presence and e-commerce capabilities.

We are sponsoring the ‘Best Website Award’ category as we know how important this channel is for business development. According to our SME Digital Health Index 2018, 89% of SMEs say their website plays an important role in driving new business. With online spending rising ten times faster than offline we believe that more Irish SMEs need to actively engage in digitalising their sales processes.  Our research shows that only 30% of SMEs can take sales orders and only 26% can process payments via their website. The ‘Best Website Award’ celebrates the achievements of those companies who are developing their digital presence and leading the way online.’

This category recognises best in class website design and for that reason, IE Domain Registry is a perfect sponsor of this category.
