Well, to be anal, you don't get anything, because ebay.ie doesn't resolve to a
webserver. The domain only has NS (esat), TXT ("EUnet Customer") and MX records.
I wonder if they're using the MX records, the cheeky gets? :)
Anyway, services used by the domain aren't really in the IEDR's domain
(snigger). As long as they conform to the appropriate sections of the IEDR
policies - http://www.domainregistry.ie/policies/ie_obtain.html - they're ok.
Still though, I reckon ebid.ie should never have been given it. Not really the
fault of the IEDR I guess, but... :)
