What's a .nu domain name?
The .nu domain ending is the geographic domain ending for the small, Pacific island nation of Niue, located 2,400 km (1,500 miles) from New Zealand. Launched in 1997, .nu and mostly used outside of island, .nu is a convenient domain ending that's open for anyone to register a domain name. The term "nu" has a few different meanings, depending on the language, and can be used for different types of website.
A .nu domain name is well suited to several languages
In English-speaking countries, .nu can be used to mean "new." And even though the meaning of "nu" may seem obvious in English, this domain ending can also be used to make "domain hacks", or domain names that use the domain ending as part of a word or phrase, like "me.nu," for example. We leave it to you to find a word that fits for you.
Promote your business with a .nu domain name
By choosing .nu for your domain name, you will be able to freely choose your domain name, since this domain ending is still relatively untapped compared to traditional ones like .com or .net. It's also easy to remember and can improve your search engine ranking.
