    “Our portfolio of Japanese domain names now makes navigation of the Internet intuitive for Japanese users. The marketing campaign shows Japanese corporations and SMEs how Japanese suffixes enable them to protect and extend their branding online,” said Takehito Shimomura, Chief Operating Officer of ejapanDNS.

    ejapanDNS provides registration of Japanese domain names with the new Japanese suffixes using technology provided by i-DNS.net International, the world's leading provider of multilingual Internet technology solutions.

    Previously, Japanese domain names could only be registered using English alphanumeric domains such as .com and .net. Thanks to i-DNS.net’s technology, companies and individuals will now be able to register both the prefix and the suffix in Japanese using hiragana, katakana and kanji.

    The same i-DNS technology utilised by ejapanDNS is being employed by users worldwide to access websites using multilingual domain names registered with VeriSign Global Registry Services and i-DNS.net International. Since November 2000, Verisign’s subsidiary, Network Solutions, has registered over one million names in Chinese, Japanese and Korean, and i-DNS’s technology is now being deployed globally to provide domain names in over 30 languages.

    To access all these domain names, users install a free Windows plug-in called iClient that enables the resolution of multilingual domain names and e-mail addresses. iClient is available from i-DNS.net’s website (http://tech.i-DNS.net/support/iClient/iClient.html), from VeriSign’s website (http://www.verisign-grs.com/idn/client/), from ejapanDNS (http://www.ejapandns.co.jp) and many other sites. In the coming months, i-DNS’s multilingual technology will also be incorporated into new versions of several Internet browsers.

    Responding to a growing demand for appropriate and natural language domain names in the Japanese market, ejapanDNS will expand the range of Japanese suffixes in the near future.
