Why .mu?

Why choose a .mu domain name?

Official geographic domain ending for Mauritius, the island nation in the Indian Ocean and home to around 1.3 million people, .mu has also been marketed as a domain ending dedicated to musical websites, "mu" being an abbreviation for "music." As such, musical groups like the English band Muse have chosen this domain ending.

The .mu domain ending offers new horizons

Because it is both original and easy to remember, the .mu domain ending allows you to find a domain name much more easily than in traditional domain endings like .com or .net that are already saturated. It will primarily be interesting for individuals and organizations with some connection to Mauritius or the rest of the Indian Ocean. However, if you have some connection to music, this domain ending will also be particularly suitable, especially since "music" is written more or less the same way in many languages around the world.

A .mu can help you develop or maintain a strong brand identity

Because it's so easily identifiable geographically speaking, .mu gives your site high visibility at a local scale in Mauritius. The .mu domain ending is also a great idea for promoting your business in Mauritius since the inhabitants of this island nation will be able to easily find you by typing your business sector in search engines, since you will rank higher in Mauritius with a .mu domain name in search engine results.
