Verisign is excited to announce the General Registration Period for .コム — the .com you know, now in Japanese — during which anyone can register .コム domain names on a first-come, first-served basis, subject to availability and the applicable registry policies. The General Registration Period for .コム began at 00:00:00 UTC on June 13, 2016, following the Landrush Program Period.*
It is estimated that 95 percent of the population of Japan uses the internet every day.1 By enabling Japanese internet users to navigate the web in their native scripts, .コム gives individuals and companies the ability to connect with audiences in their preferred language. It also helps enable global brands to maintain a consistent brand identity.
In addition to helping maintain and promote your brand identity, a .コム domain name can yield other benefits. For example:
Registering a .コム domain name is a powerful way to tailor your website to local customers with a domain name powered by Verisign. Don't miss your opportunity to connect with this important audience. Register your .コム domain name before someone else does.
