Meaning and history

The domain extension .hu is the country-specific top-level domain from Hungary. It was introduced in 1990 and is administered by the Association of Hungarian Internet Service Providers.

At the beginning only Hungarian persons and companies could register such a domain. Exceptions were made for foreigners only if the persons or companies had a permanent residence in Hungary. However, in 2005 these stricter rules were abolished and since then any normal person or company can register a Hungarian domain regardless of their location.

Hungary is called a so-called landlocked country, which means a country that has no direct access to the sea. The country has about 9.8 million inhabitants, of which about 3.3 million live in the capital Budapest.
The country is known for its delicious salami and tasty peppers, but the country also has a lot to offer in cultural terms. The city of Budapest offers a unique cityscape thanks to its incomparable architecture and an interesting history.

Of course this makes the country attractive for tourists as well, so it might be worthwhile to register a .hu domain. This not only gives you a better ranking in Hungarian search engines, but also shows your customers that you can easily book a trip to Hungary on this site.

In total, the .hu domain has 0.6 million registrations worldwide, making it one of the most popular top-level domains. It is suitable for a versatile field of application. Not only touristic activities can be realized with the .hu domain. It is also suitable for many other purposes, such as an online shop that focuses on Hungarian specialties and food.

Within the borders of Hungary, the country-specific top-level domain is used for almost all purposes. Predominantly by state institutions such as schools, universities or government offices. But also many private persons use the .hu for their private purposes without pursuing a business or governmental interest.
