Domain

We've lately had our website converted into Japanese, and I'd love suggestions about the following steps. I dont speak any Japanese.

Regarding Japanese domains. I suppose that domain names with roman figures, despite b .jp ending, may have a useless search engine optimization value for Japanese search engines like google?

Do Japanese language domain names exist? Otherwise, I believe we'll choose oursite.jp. Will purchasing the domain from godaddy affect search engine optimization, or must i purchase from a japanese domain title provider?


Hosting

Does anybody are conscious of a great host company inside Japan? Our other sites are located by hostgator, but I have heard that hosting in the area increases search engine optimization. What are the hosting companies in Japan or even the region that you could suggest?

Thanks a lot ahead of time!
You will find rules to restringing a Japanese domain title mainly you may need a postal address in japan. You will find other limitations like for any .jp you are able to only register one domain. If it is a co.jp your company should be registered in japan and when its a individual you'll want the address there. You will find a lot of other activities that you might want to consider this a bit more. Basically remember properly the applying should be completed in Japanese.

Hey Hummingbird,

yuzuki is correct, great information above. Furthermore, the registrar you're considering won't affect your Search engine optimization so you can utilize the registrar of your liking as lengthy as buying a Japanese TLD is relevant for the situation.

Best luck!
