no explanation for this. There is nothing special in the German language for .vu (as it is for .tk in Danish which means registered company).  Vu is neither a word in itself nor are there many german words which end with .vu. Probably there is something special behind it (to make a difference, exotic etc.). Would be interested to find this out.

Betreff: [EURO-Discuss] question -- not really ALAC related

Why is the dot VU ccTLD popular with German speaking Internet users?
Very high number of German registrants and webpages using .VU names
in German.

I know registrations were free and some German registrars are still
offering names at no cost.  But is there something about VU that's
particularly relevant to German language or use (example an
abbreviation for something like Ltd. or Plc company registration.)

Sorry, a bit off topic for the RALO, but help appreciated.
