What is the difference between Primary Key and Unique key?

Both Primary Key and Unique Key enforces uniqueness of the column on which they are defined. But by default Primary Key creates a Clustered Index on the column, where are Unique Key creates a Nonclustered Index by default. Another major difference is that, Primary Key doesn’t allow NULLs, but Unique Key allows one NULL only.
