.vn Regulations

Requirements & Information

Why register .vn?
Vietnam is a beautiful country located in Southeast Asia and is the easternmost country on the Indochinese Peninsula. With a population of about 96.2 million as of 2019, it is the 15th most populous country in the world. Its capital city is called Hanoi, and its most populous city is Ho Chi Minh City (formerly Saigon). It is ranked among the fastest-growing countries in the world with a high GDP growth rate. Vietnam is known for its spectacular beaches, friendly and welcoming people, unique cuisine and street food, and a strong culture-rich in heritage.

If you conduct business from within Vietnam, it is time to register a .vn domain extension. Registering a dot 'VN' country code extension (top level domain name) will increase credibility for your business across the globe. Why? Country-code domains are meant specifically for businesses that do business within a particular country--in this case, Vietnam. The .com domain (and other generic TLDs) are not targeted and that online space is saturated--and you likely already have the .com for your business.

Extend your brand presence with a more relevant, shorter domain--a ccTLD that differentiates you from competitors. Identify yourself as an official Vietnamese business owner and give your clients and constituents more confidence as they interact with you online. Country code domains also help you rank higher in local search results.

We are operating under agreement with VNNIC, the ccTLD manager and Registry for Vietnam. We will provide your information to them in order to facilitate the operation of your domain name. We will republish VNNIC's Whois data base in conformity with International Privacy Standards. Otherwise absolutely all of your information will be kept strictly private in accordance with the following provisions:

Information you provide includes basic contact information, payment information, and necessary technical information. When you purchase our services, you agree to provide and maintain accurate, complete and updated information.

After you've signed up for our services, we may be in communication with you about your account, technical questions you may have about services provided by us, or other matters relating to those services. Those communications are essential to our relationship with you and to our ability to provide you with quality services that are responsive to your needs. We therefore may maintain this information for future use.

The information we receive from or about you is stored on systems designed to prevent the loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction of that information. We also encrypt your transmission of sensitive information to us (e.g., credit card numbers, account passwords) in the interest of heightened privacy protection and information integrity.

We compile and maintain a private registration database that includes basic information about each domain name registered with us, including the names, telephone numbers and e-mail addresses of individuals designated as points of contact. Whether or not applicable domain name registration fees have been paid, this portion is private between you and us. Unlike many registration sites we restrict all access to the registration database.

You can correct or change certain information in our records, such as your address and contact information. The instructions for doing this can be found on our web site. You may change this information at any time and as often as necessary. If you need assistance or have questions about correcting information, you can contact us via e-mail.

We use information for purposes of monitoring and improving our internal operations, as well as to ensure that we:
(i) bill you properly
(ii) administer your account in accordance with your agreements with us
(iii) properly perform the services you have requested.

You may find it troubling to have to retype your password, however we believe it is worth the effort for greater privacy and security. You can configure your personal settings to minimize the effort. Older versions of IE may find that they should reconfigure also.

We must disclose your domain name and its associated Internet Protocol ("IP") numbers in order to make your chosen domain name a functional address on the Internet.

We may share certain information about you with those of our vendors who are responsible for handling your account or performing other necessary services that you require.

We share sensitive financial information (e.g., credit card numbers, banking information), security information (e.g., account passwords) and personal communications (e.g., personal e-mail messages or message board postings) with such vendors where necessary and appropriate.

We may share the information stored on that database, as well as other information that is not of a sensitive nature, with carefully selected business partners, including those who offer services that complement those provided by us or which may otherwise be of interest to you. When you purchase our services, you also represent to us that you have provided notice to, and obtained consent from any third party individuals whose personal data you supply to us.

You agree that your failure to abide by any provision of this Agreement, any dot.VN operating rule or policy, the dispute policy, your willful providing of inaccurate or unreliable information as part of the application process, your failure to update your information to keep it current, complete or accurate, or your failure to respond for over fifteen (15) calendar days to inquiries from us concerning the accuracy of the contact details associated with your domain name registration may be considered by us to be a material breach and we may provide a written notice, describing the breach to you. If within ten (10) calendar days of the date of such notice, you fail to provide evidence which is reasonably satisfactory to us that you have not breached your obligations under the Agreement, then we may delete the registration or reservation of your domain name and/or terminate the other dot.VN' service(s) you are using without further notice. We will not refund any fees paid by you if we terminate your Agreement due to your breach. Any such breach by you shall not be deemed to be excused simply because we did not act earlier in response to that, or any other breach, by you.


You agree that, by registration of your chosen domain name, such registration does not confer immunity from objection to either the registration or use of your domain name.




You agree that we may terminate your contractual right to use our service(s) if the information that you are obligated to provide to register your domain name or register for other dot.VN service(s), or that you subsequently modify, contains false or misleading information, or conceal or omit any information, we would likely consider material to our decision to register your domain name or to continue to provide you domain name registration services. Furthermore, you agree that we may suspend, cancel or transfer your domain name registration services in order to: (i) correct mistakes made by us or the registry in registering your chosen domain name, or (ii) to resolve a dispute under our dispute policy. We will not refund any fees paid by you if we terminate services.

The terms of this Agreement are severable. If any term or provision is declared invalid or unenforceable, that term or provision will be construed consistent with applicable law as nearly as possible to reflect the original intentions of the parties, and the remaining terms and provisions will remain in full force and effect.


This Agreement, the rules and policies published by us, the dispute policy and the privacy statement are the complete and exclusive agreement between you and us regarding our services. This Agreement, our rules and policies, the dispute policy and the privacy statement supersede all prior agreements and understandings, whether established by custom, practice, policy or precedent.


You may transfer your domain name registration to a third party of your choice, subject to the procedures and conditions incorporated herein by reference. Your rights under this Agreement are not assignable and any attempt by your creditors to obtain an interest in your rights under this Agreement, whether by attachment, levy, garnishment or otherwise, renders this Agreement voidable at our option.
