NU Domain Names from $18.95/year

With Tierra Hosting, you can register your own personal dot NU domain name at a reasonable price.

The registration of .NU domain names was launched in 1997. The purpose of the domain extension was to serve as ccTLD for the island nation Niue.

It was among the first ccTLDs to become promoted as an alternative to the well-known TLDs like .COM, .ORG and .NET. Just like with .CC and .WS, there was a particular reason for the promotion of .NU domains - "nu" is phonetically similar to "new".

Another coincidence contributing to the popularity of the ccTLD is the fact that in Dutch, Swedish and Danish the word "now" is spelled "nu" and the .NU extension has become well-known in countries like Belgium, the Netherlands, Sweden and Denmark. The extension can be used for promotion of a new product which has widespread generic name and there is no free .COM equivalent domain name.

The ccTLD .NU is one of the "open TLDs". This means that you will be able to register .NU domain name without the need to fulfill special requirements. The registration process is as easy as ABC - you just search the domain name that you want to be registered and if it shows up as available, just continue with the registration in order to become an owner of the domain name. Note that transfers of .NU domain names to Tierra Hosting are not possible.
