.ge is the country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Georgia.

  • .com.ge - only for commercial organizations
  • .edu.ge - only for educational institutions
  • .gov.ge - only for governmental organizations
  • .org.ge - only for non-governmental organizations
  • .mil.ge - only for state military organizations
  • .net.ge - only for network provider or network project organizations
  • .pvt.ge - only for private persons

History[edit]

.ge was delegated to Georgian ISP SaNet in 1992. In 2006 Caucasus Online has been formed after merger of 3 companies (including SaNet) and became sponsor of .ge.[3] Registration service was initially provided by non-profit organization Internet Development Group - Georgia, but after introduction of Caucasus Online it exclusively consolidated both administrative and registrar roles.
In 2011 a new top-level domain name was registered for Georgia, intended for domain names in the local language. The top-level domain is .გე. However it has, as of 2014, not become active. .gov.ge was delegated to LEPL Smart Logic in 2014.
