Japanese Name Assistance

I found a Japanese term I'm interested in registering, however, there appears to be a term that's very similar and appears to be a typo. The thing is I can't tell which one is the typo and which one is the "correct" one. Granted both my be used but I get conflicting results from various tools. If someone who speaks Japanese could help me out I'd really appreciate it. Thanks.

Unfortunately, it is a .jp. Otherwise I would have just registered them. I did register it though thanks to gamma's help. Once the whois updates I'll let you guys know what it was.

Re: Japanese Name Assistance

Forgot all about this.

The term I was looking at was スクリーンセーバー (screensaver). The Ovt was confusing because when searching this term results would come up for スクリーンセイバー.

Gamma was kind enough to help me decypher these two and I regged スクリーンセーバー.jp. The Ovt really throws us non-native speakers off. Transliterated words are sometimes difficult to get a handle on especially these two - 'saver' and 'saber'.

Google results and Google trends show that スクリーンセーバー is more used. But スクリーンセーバー does get a fair share. Ovt alone would not tell the whole story.
