Trends & General Information

Japanese websites often carry the ccTLD .jp - this exists since 1986 and is owned by the "Japan Registry Services Co., Ltd." managed. As a domain ending, it is well received by Japanese companies and private individuals.

As a so-called country-specific domain (ccTLD for "Country Code Top-Level-Domain"), the .jp domain offers great advantages for both companies and private individuals: Particularly in terms of search engine rankings, the ccTLD .jp is optimal in Japan and Asia because of the reputation of the Domain ending is very high. Accordingly, domains with the .jp TLD are widespread in Japan as well as worldwide.

The .jp domain can only be bought and registered by Japanese citizens, but easyname also allows non-resident internet users to register a .jp domain.
