What are



The .nu domain is the country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Niue, a small island state in the Pacific Ocean. However, registrations of this domain are open to anyone, and it is used in many different countries around the world. The word “nu” means “now” in various Northern European languages and shares phonetic similarities with the English “new”.

Where did the .nu domain come from?

The .nu domain extension was introduced to the Internet in 1997. Originally allocated to the island state of Niue, the ownership of this domain extension passed to the Internet Foundation in Sweden (IIS) in 2013. This institution also manages the Swedish ccTLD, .se. According to data provided by IIS, over 60% of registered .nu domains in 2013 were registered in Sweden.

What is the purpose of the .nu domain name?

The word “nu” means “now” in Swedish, Danish and Dutch. This domain is therefore a great option for Swedish, Danish, Dutch and Flemish businesses looking for a stand-out domain name. If you use this domain, you do not need to worry about not showing up in search engine results outside of Niue. If your website is aimed at an international audience, search engines will also classify it as such.
