All Mauritian domain names registered with us are stored on our international server. Domains registered with us are automatically provided with their own under-construction page - this notifies potential registrants that the name has been acquired and is now registered. The under-construction page is offered free of charge and may be used indefinitely.
It is possible for Web and/or Mail forwarding to be provided for Mauritian domains.
Domain transfer/release fees are charged are by a majority of registrars, but BB Online make no charge to transfer a domain to another Mauritian domain name registrar.
Background.mu is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Mauritius. It is administered by the Mauritius Network Information Centre and registrations are processed via accredited registrars. Some registrars market it as the .music and .museum TLD.
In addition, a number of musical groups have started to use this domain, with .mu being used to indicate music. Some examples are the rock bands Muse (muse.mu) and Athlete (athlete.mu) and the country band Lonestar (lonestar.mu).
.mu is currently in the process of being redelegated from its current sponsoring organization Internet Direct Ltd. to the Information and Communication Technologies Authority (ICTA) of Mauritius. The redelegation to the new .mu registry is expected to be finalized by the end of 2007.
