Domains Ending With .JP.NET Now Available to the General Public at Bargain Prices

Domains ending with .JP.NET are released this week to the general public, just days after auctions for such premium domains as zen.jp.net, japan.jp.net and sakura.jp.net produced sales prices of up to $1,050 (over 100 times the Recommended Retail Price).

Millions of domains that have been unavailable since the early days of .com, .net and .jp, are now available, ending with .JP.NET. These include:

  • Geographic domains like ebisu.jp.net, harajuku.jp.net, hiroshima.jp.net and almost every other place name in Japan
  • Valuable keywords like credit.jp.net, loans.jp.net and chat.jp.net
  • Japanese IDN domains like 糖質ゼロ.jp.net and ホメオパシー.jp.net and 食べる.jp.net
  • Three-letter domains like bet.jp.net, eat.jp.net and bid.jp.net
  • Following the lead of hundreds of global and Japanese brands, many companies will obtain domains matching their brand names and product names ending .jp.net

.JP.NET domains are not restricted to Japanese residents, and may be registered by anyone at such leading Japanese and global registrars as Onamae, Domain Discount 24, Instra, IP Mirror and 101 Domain.

"We are delighted that after domains ending .JP.NET have been embraced by trademark owners and domain investors, they are now available to the global public for instant, effortless and affordable registration", said Ben Crawford, CEO of CentralNic, the Registry for .JP.NET.
