NEWS: CIRA now operates the .IE ccTLD for Ireland
.IE transitioned its over 300,000 domains under management to the platform.
Both CIRA and .IE hailed the transition as a success. Two registrars I spoke with said it wasn’t so smooth and continues to cause headaches. The transition had over 24 hours of downtime, and registrars must now manage three systems for .IE domain names, they told Domain Name Wire.
.IE CEO David Curtin dismissed these complaints, arguing that the three programs are an improvement over the old system.
He also shifted some of the blame to registrars for not preparing.
The registry version of CIRA's registry system, Fury, for .IE is called Titan.
