Background

This domain gets a good deal of use from Cubans

.cu is the top level domain (ccTLD) for Cuba.

The ccTLD for Cuba, meaning the Internet Country Code Top-Level Domain, is .cu. It is administered by CUBANIC and they are responsible for managing all tasks relating this .cu domain name. They provide the registration service and application for all second and third level domains. Their services are provided through CENIAInternet which is controlled by CITMATEL (The Ministry of Science, Technology and Environment). It can be used by both foreign and local companies and persons. This means it can have a wider range of customers.

There are certain rules that must be revised before choosing the name of your domain names. These are as follows:

A domain name cannot be considered property, it is simply an electronic record made in the name of a certain person. It must be renewed every year with the required fee. If the domain name you want is not available, it is possible to look for a variant which includes a hyphen.

There are some instances where CUBANIC will reject a requested domain name. This could be due to any of the following reasons:

If you require a domain name more specific to its role, you can look into different third-level domains which are available. These are as follows:
.gov.cuInstitutions under the Cuban government.
.edu.cuEducation and research.
.net.cuInternet service providers.
.inf.cuOrganisations connected with science and information.
.org.cuNGOs and non-profit organisations established in the Cuba (can both be national or international).
..com.cuEntities not covered by other classifications.

 

Important Note:
Some domain names may be classified by the registry as a premium domain name and will command a higher price. If you request a premium domain name we will contact you before completing your order.

In addition, the registry may at any time reserve domain names from registration or the sale may be restricted to comply with ICANN requirements.
