Useful information about .jp domains

Trends & General Information

Japanese websites often carry the ccTLD .jp - this has existed since 1986 and is operated by "Japan Registry Services Co., Ltd." managed. As a domain extension, it is particularly popular with Japanese companies and private individuals.

As a so-called country-specific domain (ccTLD for "Country Code Top-Level-Domain"), the .jp domain offers both companies and private individuals great advantages: Especially with regard to search engine rankings, the ccTLD .jp is optimal in Japan and Asia, because the Reputation of the domain extension is very high. Accordingly, domains with the TLD .jp are widespread in the Japanese environment, but also worldwide.

The .jp domain can only be bought and registered by Japanese citizens, but easyname also allows Internet users who do not live in Japan to register a .jp domain.
