I've whoised alot of the .jp's... The registrants usually have a Japanese name. I don't come across as many .jp's that are regged by Americans. When I do it has been ppl like seamo, olney etc.

LOL I'm basing it on what I see.

Well, you are telling me that you are seeing a much higher percentage of Japanese registering .jp than Americans. However, even if we take this rather qualitive information, as you don't actually seem to have any hard figures at all, I am at a loss to see how you make the logical jump to your first statement, which is a total different hypothesis.

Isn't that because the IDNers have grabbed all the .coms?

Re: Japanese are regging both .com's and .jp's but it looks like a greater percentage

I don't know how many Japanese hold dot com IDNs but I have been informing you guys that there has been recent incentives to let companies buy IDN Domains.
Japan registry will only promote IDN.jp because it's in their interest.
They don't make money off of IDN.com so they won't promote it.

The independent domain resellers promote both but it with deals going on it would seem logical IDN.jp sites might appear to be developed.

I'm not going to say which is better it's your choice which you want to invest in.

I think Jeff's point is that there seems to be an increase in jp registrations. I also am finding a few Japanese companies that seem to be building portfolios in dot jp. Some have held on from the start & some are fairly new.

It might also be valid that it's because the most generic dot coms are gone.

I've given up on searching for new dot coms you guys are good so I haven't looked to see about the registrations for dot com.

Re: Japanese are regging both .com's and .jp's but it looks like a greater percentage .jp

I have been extremely pleased with the large numbers of japanese companies that seem to be purchasing .jp as I go down the whois.

Though, my portfolio is skewed towards .com these days. I think folks are aware that I have always thought that .jp would be preferred over .com by the Japanese. We won't know until it's obvious and by then our relative bets will have been made. All the same, I doubt there will be any absolute losers .jp/.com/or .net (and yes even .tv)

I totally agree it's not a battle it's a personal preference.
Some won't be available in dot jp. So there's no other choice but com, net, or TV...

Someone once said that the Japanese don't watch 'TV'

How is .tv different than .cc or .ws to that market?

It seems that .tv has a foothold of sorts in Japan already. Mainly in the adult market..

Is that because the other extensions are already taken or does .tv mean something? What would the IDN.IDN extension become?

we have debated this one at length no one knows but we presume since the 10,000 people of the nation of tuvalu depend on the .tv domains for the bulk of their GDP, that they will agree to allow .tv to be .テレビ  which is japanese for "TV"

Re: Japanese are regging both .com's and .jp's but it looks like a greater percentage

I think that's also the case for .cn, in fact, most idn.cn domains, especially factory product names, were taken since 2003, while Giant was able register chinese idn.com generics by the hundreds and thousands from 2003 to 2005, despite the fact that .cn costs many times more than .com.

Probably because Chinese people assumed that idns must be in .cn or that .com can't support idn, a result of CNNIC and local ISP promotions.

I think the same case applies for .jp. It all boils down to awareness.

Very good point above (awareness).

Another point I wish to add is that .cn is much cheaper in China than .com.
According to Onley, the same is true for .jp, which was once free to Japanese citizens.
