While most generic top-level domain (gTLD) registries have automated processing, many country code top-level domains(ccTLD) require manual processing. Processing starts after all requirements, documentation, and information has been received. Then, your domain registration order is in line to be processed.

Registrations are often individually submitted, reviewed, and approved by a member of our support team and at the registry. It may take additional time for your registration to be activated and live. Each TLD extension is detailed by Verpex hosting with a description of how long a registration may take to activate.
