Once the domain is registered
All Vietnamese domain names registered with us are stored on our international server. Domains registered with us are automatically provided with their own under-construction page - this notifies potential registrants that the name has been acquired and is now registered. The under-construction page is offered free of charge and may be used indefinitely.
It is possible for Web and/or Mail forwarding to be provided for Vietnamese domains.
Domain transfer/release fees are charged are by a majority of registrars, but BB Online make no charge to transfer a domain to another Vietnamese domain name registrar.
Fairly popular in Vietnam
.vn is Vietnam's Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD). The VNNIC, the registry operator for the .vn domain, signed a deal in 2003 with the company DotVN Inc. to sell the country's top level domain (.vn) internationally.
Law forbids hosting content on a .vn domain that can be used to oppose the state of Vietnam. Information concerning State and Party agencies must be agreed in advance with the relevant party and this information must be protected before it can be hosted. Registrations for a .vn domain name can be received from both inside and outside of Vietnam but the registrars themselves are all based in Vietnam.
A third level domain can be issued under a second level .vn domain within a company or organisation's own structure for non-commercial purposes only. The company or organisation will be fully responsible for management of all third level domains and it's content.
