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.
