Quick! Do you know where the country of Tuvalu is located? OK, let me ask another question… Did you ever HEAR of the country called Tuvalu?
Tuvalu, formerly known as the Ellice Islands, is a Polynesian island nation located in the Pacific Ocean, midway between Hawaii and Australia. For most people, they would never know about it. However, if you ever register a .tv domain (to house your video website, let’s say), .tv is the domain for Tuvalu (just like Britain has .uk; France has .fr; and so on).
Do you have a .tv domain name? More and more people have one and they are using it as a video blog. A video blog or video log (sometimes shortened to vlog) is a form of blog for which the medium is video, and is a form of web television.
In an article titled, As Online Video Surges, the .TV Domain Rides the Wave, they point out the significance of video on the web today and how this domain extension is a big part of it:

I have never heard of Tuvalu, but my fiance is from Tonga (a polynesian island near New Zealand) so I am going to ask him about it, and see what he knows about it. Very interesting.
Awful fun testing a spouse or fiance! Good luck, Bethany! Let me know if he knows where it is!
Another hidden paradise exposed. Thanks for sharing this.
