Method of confirmation
Registration period after transfer
Average transfer time
Advanced and simple transfers available Contact our Sales department to check if easy transfer of 100 or more .com.ve domains is available.

Updates are not real-time and might cost additional charges.

DNS update is not immediate, note changes must propagate through the network, this process can take up to 6-12 hours to complete, until then the domain will still point to the previous DNS servers. Please note TLD is not 100% automated and NS update can take more time, which can also be more than 2 days, taking in mind weekends and public holidays. If the system returns "Domain update failed: E0102, Domain could not be updated., Identical task is already being processed" error after NS update try, then please contact Openprovider support to complete request.
