GMO Internet’s Onamae.com starts granting .inc domain name registrations

Maria Nikolova

The granting of the registrations will be done on a first come, first served basis.

Onamae.com, an ICANN-accredited domain registrar which is a part of GMO Internet Inc. (TYO:9449), has earlier today announced the start of offering of .inc domain name registrations.

The domain name is suitable for businesses, especially corporations, as the “Inc” abbreviation (which stands for “incorporated”) shows. Plus, the shortness of the extension is seen as an advantage. An “.inc” domain name is also said to highlight the credibility of a company.

The granting of the registrations will be done on a first come, first served basis.

Let’s note that GMO Internet has markedly expanded its lineup of domain names. Most recently, in March 2019, the company started offering .dev domain name registrations.

The offering aims to respond to the growing number of developers in the web space, as “.dev” stands for “developers”. The company considers these domain names to be particularly suitable for IT engineers and other web developers, who want to share and disseminate information about online tools, platforms, and programming languages.

In October last year, Onamae.com began offering .app domain name registrations. The .app domains are suitable for app developers, as well as for companies that market and promote such solutions.

Speaking of technology-orientated domain names, let’s mention that, in May 2018, the company started accepting registration applications for .ai domain names. This move, as one may expect, is targeted at companies whose activities involve artificial intelligence (AI), as well as at media that focus on content about AI.
