JP-DRS GMO JP Domain Registration Service

New Registration

General-Use .jp (.jp)

  • What are the requirements to register a .jp domain name?
    Both natural persons and corporations can register .jp domain names and they can register any number of domains. Although local presence is required, if your customer does not have a local presence in Japan, they may use our postal address for REGISTRANT information while their domains are managed by our JP-DRS service. Our postal address MUST NOT be used for any other contacts such as PUBLIC CONTACT since non-Japanese address is allowed to be used for those contacts, and therefore we offer our local presence service only for registrant information.
