About .ve Domains

NIC.VE is the sponsor and NameAction/Hexonet is the backend provider for the country-code top-level domain name (ccTLD) .ve extensions that represents Venezuela.

Who can register .ve domains?

Important Notice: Effective April 6, 2020, GoDaddy is temporarily no longer accepting new registrations or incoming transfers for the .VE domain extensions. This is due to new registry rules requiring customers to provide a Tax Identification Registry "RIF" or Identity Card in order to complete .VE registrations. If you already owned a .VE domain with GoDaddy prior to April 6, 2020, you can continue to renew your existing .VE domain name.

1 Renewal Restrictions

.ve domains cannot be renewed before the day they expire.

Explicit renewals are allowed as long as doing so does not bring the expiration date two or more calendar years in the future. For example, if a .ve domain is set to expire on December 31, 2020, a renewal to December 31, 2021 could be processed on January 1, 2020, but not on December 31, 2020.

2 Transfer Away Restrictions

To transfer your .ve domain to another registrar, you must submit the transfer with the gaining registrar, who will require the registrant to provide an authorization code. Please contact our award-winning GoDaddy Guides to request the authorization code.

3 Contact Update Requirements

Changes to all other domain name contacts can be made through the Domain Manager. See Change my domain contact information for information on this process.
