.lu is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Luxembourg. A local contact has to be appointed to register a domain name under .lu.
.lu domains are administered by Restena.
For many years, the application was done only via postal mail or fax. The fees for a .lu second level domain are of 40 euros for the creation (or modification of a contact) and 40 euros yearly (incl. VAT).
On September 18th 2006 the registry introduced a domain name registrar model.
