.ge is the country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Georgia.
.ge top-level domain names are available for registration for residents of Georgia (unlimited) or for foreign companies via representation of any local legal person (limited to one domain name per registrant). Second-level domain names are also available for registration for several specific types of registrants:
.ge was delegated to Georgian ISP SaNet in 1992. In 2006 Caucasus Online has been formed after merger of 3 companies (including SaNet) and became sponsor of .ge. Registration service was initially provided by non-profit organization Internet Development Group - Georgia, but after introduction of Caucasus Online it exclusively consolidated both administrative and registrar roles.
.gov.ge was delegated to LEPL Smart Logic in 2014.
In 2011 a new top-level domain name was registered for Georgia, intended for domain names in the local language. The top-level domain is .გე. It became active with active web sites in 2016.
Starting from January 20, 2016, Georgia register s.გე top-level domains using Georgian Mkhedruli script. At first, the process started for reservation of governmental, commercial TLDs but after 6 months from start date, registration of IDN ccTLDs became available to general public.
