The .ZULU top-level domain will serve the Zulu nation, its diaspora, and speakers of isiZulu, as well as those who wish to identify with the Zulu name and nation. While Internet access today is not available to the majority of the Zulu people, the .ZULU gTLD will provide a global digital identity for the Zulu nation and the isiZulu language. The application by Top Level Domain Holdings for the .ZULU top-level has the support of the King Goodwill Zwelithini kaBhekuzulu and his government.
The Zulu people are the largest South African ethnic group, with an estimated 10.5 million people living mainly in the province of KwaZulu-Natal. The modern Zulu population is distributed between urban and rural areas. Although many still live in KwaZulu-Natal, many have relocated to Gauteng province.
The language of the Zulu people, isiZulu, is a widely spoken language in South Africa. More than 50% of the South African population is able to understand it, with over 24 million first- and second-language speakers. It is one of the eleven official languages of the Republic of South Africa.
The .ZULU top-level domain will provide a digital identity for the Zulu people and language. .ZULU will provide a readily recognizable identifiable means of communicating with people, organizations and businesses that associate or identify with the Zulu people and the isiZulu language. The .ZULU top-level domain will assist in promoting business, tourism, and developing the Zulu culture and language.
