What script to use for .jp ?

Hello,

I'm registering a couple of .jp, but I'm not sure what script to use.
Seems there are kanji romaji kana hiragana.
Is there one that's more appropriate in Japan, or do they mix them according to meaning?
I searched the forum a bit but didn't find much.

Re: What script to use for .jp ?

Every Japanese word can be phonectically written in Kana, but you'll have to dig a bit to see what form is most popular, using SERP with quotes, overture, and so on.

The Cliff notes lowdown is that Katakana is often used for newer words borrowed from other languages. Newer doesn't mean less popular.

Kanji and Hiragana are sometimes mixed together in single words. For instance, you'll see many examples of kanji with an お in front that makes the term more respectful.

Don't think you want romaji -- that's Japanese written as it sounds in ASCII.

Good luck hunting!

Ok tanx.
I'll most likely suck at guessing, so I'll limit my intake accordingly

Read the english wikipedia article on the japanese writing system to understand it. Basically, I don't think in terms of kanji, hiragana, or katakana - I just see it as one writing system with lots of exceptions and conventions. In these matters let overture be your guide.

One caution if you do find a high overture katakana word that isn't a transliteration from a foreign language - type it into Yahoo.co.jp and see what comes up. Could very well be a trademark.

Happy hunting. I've been going a little crazy lately. Yesterday went on a binge and registered 50 .jp

Of course. You aren't Japanese, so you can't find anything. This time: Japanese only. Sorry. Have a nice day. ^_^
