Who can register .vip domains?

Anyone can register .vip domain names on a first-come, first-served basis.

Renewals

We'll attempt to auto-renew your .vip domain on its expiration date. We'll park .vip domain names after the first failed billing attempt. If the domain isn't renewed within 40 days following expiration, we cancel it and remove it from your account.

Refund details

For details on refunds, please visit GoDaddy's Refund Policy page. Most domains will follow the Standard Terms, but certain domains will have exceptions or may not be refundable at all. Look under BOTH of the following categories:

  • Products with Special Refund Terms (look under Domain Name Registrations/Renewals)
  • Products Not Eligible for Refunds

Nameserver requirements

One nameserver is required for .vip domains to resolve, and a maximum of 13 nameservers is allowed. DNSSEC, IPv4 and IPv6 are supported.
