.vu Regulations

Requirements & Information

Why register .VU?
Vanuatu is a archipelago - a string of islands (more than 80 in fact) located in the South Pacific Ocean. These islands were once known as New Hebrides and today, most are inhabited. The largest town is called Port Vila. Vanuatu was the 185th country to become a member of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) and is ranked highly as one of safest investment destination in the world. It was also ranked the 84th most economically free country by The Heritage Foundation and The Wall Street Journal. Vanuatu has a strong culture and heritage--illustrated by its name "Vanuatu". Vanua means 'land' and tu means 'to stand or to remain' and symbolises the independence or belonging to 'our land'. Fishing and tourism are two of the main sources of income Vanuatu.

If you conduct business from within Vanuatu, it is time to register a .vu domain extension. Registering a dot 'VU' country code extension (top level domain name) will increase credibility for your business across the globe. Why? Country-code domains are meant specifically for businesses that do business within a particular country--in this case, Vanuatu. The .com domain (and other generic TLDs) are not targeted and that online space is saturated--and you likely already have the .com for your business.

Extend your brand presence with a more relevant, shorter domain--a ccTLD that differentiates you from competitors. Identify yourself as an official Vanuatu business owner and give your clients and constituents more confidence as they interact with you online. Country code domains also help you rank higher in local search results.
