.ve domain names must have zone configuration verified by the Registry prior to the registration of a domain name.

If you want to register a .ve domain name with GoDaddy and use our nameservers, we will handle this process for you.

If you want to use your own nameservers, you must set them up before you register or update the domain name. You must also ensure that they are resolving properly before you assign them to the domain name in our system.

Nameserver updates can take up to 5 days to complete.

3 Transfer Away requirements

To begin the the transfer away process, please contact our support department.

4 Contact update requirements

You can update all other contact information in the Domain Manager in your account. See Change domain contact information for more information.
