NU Domain Names from $17.95/year

NU 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.
