Where .nu comes from
Country abbreviations were used in the early days of the internet, along with generic names like .com, .net and .org, to create the top level of the standard format developed for email and website addresses. The .nu name comes from the International Standard Organisation abbreviation for Niue.
The obvious choice
A .nu domain is the obvious choice for anyone with a connection to Niue.
It’s also the obvious choice for anyone who wants to be seen as fashionable. In text messages, ‘nu’ stands for ‘new’. And new is always the smart place to be!
In the Swedish, Danish, Norwegian, Belgian and Dutch languages ‘nu’ means ‘now’, adding special impact to domains based in those countries. Indeed, Sweden has more .nu domains than any other country.
For anyone trying to register their preferred name for their firm or organisation, a .nu domain is often the best option. This is because most common names were long ago taken for the popular .com, .net, .org top level domains and those linked to major countries.
.nu registrations are affordable and open to anyone anywhere in the world, provided that the content does not promote illegal activities.
