環.net
 
I have been seeing a lot of views on this one. TDC has the dot com (since 2000), so it can't be too bad. Any opinions?

This character is used in both Traditional Chinese and Japanese. Means Ring/loop/hoop/bracelet. As you said with the .com regged for such a long time, probably a good domain..

I know that it somehow refers to circles, but I didn't know whether that was jewelry, metaphysics, geometry, astronomy, etc. or just circles/rings/hoops/circular things.

Lots of views, not clicks. Any ND theme ideas?

It refers to any subject, to expresses surrounding/circle/ring, as with many chinese/japanese words it is one of the parts of of compound word. Not really used by itself.

Some examples of it's use (in trad chinese - which i am more familar with)
環保 - environmental protection
環球 - global worldwide
環境 - environment/surrounding
耳環 - ear ring
光環 - halo
環抱 - embrace
環模 - ring die

Above you can see all words have a concept of surrounding/circle. This is because of the 環 character.
For Chinese the main use of the word would probably be for 環保 (environmental protection- environment), maybe you could try this for the theme?

OK, thanks!

Mystery solved, I think. When I search Google for Japanese pages only, the first result is kan dash net dot com.

Also, the corresponding wiki is not so commercial:

English: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ring_%28mathematics%29
Japanese: http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E7%92%...95%B0%E5%AD%A6)
