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.

- You can renew .com.ve, .info.ve, .net.ve, .org.ve, and .web.ve domain names renews before its expiration date. The renewal date depends on whether the domain name is auto-renewed or renewed manually. Auto-renewal is attempted 21 days prior to the domain name's expiration. If the renewal attempt fails, we re-attempt renewal 14 days prior to expiration. If the second attempt fails, we try one more time 7 days prior to the expiration date.
- If we cannot auto-renew the domain name and you do not manually renew it 7 days prior to the expiration date, it must be redeemed. There might be a fee for the redemption. See Renew my expired domain for instructions on the redemption.
- For example: Your .com.ve, .info.ve, .net.ve, .org.ve, and .web.ve domain name expires on October 1. If your domain name does not renew automatically, you can renew it manually by September 24. For automatic renewals, we attempt to renew the domain name on September 10, September 17, and September 24.
