It's just a transliteration from the English word "century" but doesn't have any use at all in the Japanese language. Just so happens that at least 4 decent companies/establishments use that in their name: century 21, century hyatt, century corp, and century securities. Someone will probably want that domain especially as there is so much diversity among the companies that use the moniker.

Re: センチュリー.com [century]

OK, this is just my take in it. It is not Century as we normally think of it. The searches were for Century 21 but they only typed in the "senchuri" with a dash in many cases. Most of the ovt results include the '21' in the search 'センチュリー 21' so it doesn't seem to be as generic as you might like. www.century21.jp (real estate) and Century 21 Department Stores are probably what they were searching for.... Does that make sense?

That's not a 'dash'. That a vowel extender which is an integral part of katakana words. Meanings change with or without it.

For instance, ビル is building and ビール is beer.

The former is pronounced 'biru' and the latter 'bi-iru' with a split second extension on the first vowel.
