.mu is the country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Mauritius, an island country in the Indian Ocean. While .mu is of course a great choice for any business targeting local Mauritanians, it's also sometimes used as a domain hack by businesses that have a connection to the letters 'mu,' such as makeup brands.
First introduced in 1995, .mu is managed by the Mauritius Network Information Centre (MUNIC). Although originally intended to help locan Mauritanians establish a digital presence, anyone in the world can register a .mu domain name. For this reason, it has become popular among music brands, museums, and other businesses that can be abbreviated to 'mu.'
