.ve is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Venezuela.

Registrations are allowed without restrictions, only at the third level:

  • .arts.ve - artistic and cultural institution
  • .co.ve - a website originally ".com" ported to Venezuelan Spanish
  • .com.ve - Venezuelan commercial entity
  • .info.ve - informational sites
  • .net.ve - network service providers
  • .org.ve - non-profit organizations
  • .radio.ve - radio stations
  • .web.ve - individuals

The following second-level domains allow restricted third-level domain registrations:[1]

  • .gob.ve / .gov.ve - government-related websites
  • .edu.ve - Venezuela based educational institutions
  • .int.ve - International institutions
  • .mil.ve - Venezuelan military institution
  • .tec.ve - University of Technology

Internationalized domain names are available using the following Spanish characteres: á, é, í, ó, ú, ü, and ñ.[2]

A number of second-level domain names are in place, i.e., cha.ve, internet.ve, ipv6.ve, nic.ve
