.JP and .NET Domain Owners Set to Boost Online Presence With .JP.NET, the New Domain for Japan

Just over a month before the public scramble commences to snap up .jp.net domains on a first-come, first-served basis, an exclusive invitation has been extended to .jp and .net registrants to secure their matching domains at Japan's newest extension.

The offer will provide valuable assurance to existing domain holders who wish to protect their online assets and uniquely benefit from the domain's ability to simultaneously achieve international exposure and register their Japanese identity — allowing their websites to be easily located by local and global search engines and customers.

"As a rights-focused registry we appreciate the importance of allocating .jp.net registrations in a fair and equitable manner, not least because those who successfully secure their desired .jp.net domain names will be rewarded with significant exposure in a nation whose internet penetration ranks amongst the world's top 20" said Ben Crawford, CEO of CentralNic, the Registry Operator for .JP.NET.

Following a Sunrise phase that experienced high demand from prominent global brands it is expected that entitled domain holders will follow suit by swiftly capitalizing on this significant opportunity to obtain internet real-estate in the world's third largest economy.

Eligible registrants are invited to register through one of .JP.NET's official distribution partners.
