Useful links

Everyone knows that Google is the largest and most widely used search engine in most European countries. However, for the Isle of Man Google does not work very well as it confuses the websites with those in the United Kingdom.

Isle of Man is a self-governed jurisdiction under the English crown – however: When you search the web and are based on the island you most often are only interested in shops, restaurants etc that are actually based here on the island.

Because of the above reasons the Isle of Man Portal.com website provides you with a large list of companies and websites that specifically relates to the island in one way or another – to keep your navigation on the Internet for Isle of Man related questions much more relevant.

Please feel free to suggest links to us that you think is relevant to other Manx people or people here on the island.
