.ye is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Yemen.

.YE regulations[edit]

In order to register a .YE domain, it is necessary to have a company registered locally. However, some registrars provide a local presence service for non-Yemeni clients. Domain names need to be hosted in Yemen.[1]

Second level domains[edit]

There are eight Second Level Domains:

  • com.ye: Commercial Entities
  • co.ye: Companies
  • ltd.ye: Limited Companies
  • me.ye: Private Individuals
  • net.ye: Network Providers
  • org.ye: Non-commercial Organizations
  • plc.ye: Public Companies
  • gov.ye: Government and Governmental System

Second top domain[edit]

A second top domain will be used for Yemen, intended for domain names in the local language. The string اليمن (al-Yaman) was registered and approved for this purpose in March 2011, but it was not activated and lower lever domains were not granted at that time.
