Why register a .JP domain?

Japanese companies have in time discovered the potential of building a corporate web presence under their country domain for more precise targeting and better monetary results. Japanese residents, in turn, have in their majority preferred the .JP extension for their domains over the popular generic TLDs largely due to its strong identity value.

Second-level JP. domains

.JP domains are freely available at the second level to Japanese entities. Like most ccTLDs, .JP is characterized by several restricted-use second-level domains such as: .AC.JP (for academic institutions), .ED.JP for (for educational institutions under 18), .GO.JP (government ministries), .NE.JP (for network service providers), .OR.JP (for non-profit organizations), .CO.JP (for incorporated companies), etc.

.JP domain registration requirements

Since Japan is widely open to the foreign world, both in terms of economics and social life, the .JP domains are also accessible to non-Japanese companies, organizations and individuals. Each .JP registrant is required to have a permanent contact address and phone number in Japan. Also, most of the registrant information must be written with Japanese characters, while for the remaining fields you may use alphabet.

.JP management options

You can register your own .JP domain name anytime now for 1 year and enjoy a feature-rich .JP Domain Manager with many control options such as .JP Domain Parking, Full Whois Management, Custom DNS Records setting, among them MX& A Records, NS Records, AAAA Records, SRV Records, TXT Records, etc.
