"The Osaka community has been in existence for thousands of years, and is known as Japan’s oldest capital. Osaka has been an economic and cultural center of the Japan for over a long span of time, though formally, the geographic area that defines the community, Osaka Prefecture, was formally established in 1868... The community is best defined by its geographic boundaries. The Osaka Prefecture is currently the 3rd most populous area in Japan with a community of over 8.8 million people." The applicant delineates the community along as including legal entities, citizens, governments and public sectors; it proposed creating a Domain Advisory Committee composed of members from each area in order to create, enforce, and oversee its registration policies. "All registrants of an “.osaka” name must satisfy at least one the following: Osaka municipalities and local governments; Public and private institutions in Osaka; Organizations, companies, and other businesses in Osaka; Residents of Osaka; Others community members who have a bona fide purpose for registering and using a “.osaka” domain. Registrants who purchase “.osaka” names will be required to certify that meet one of the categories above. Meeting these requirements is on a continual basis, and therefore the registrant re-certifies compliance with the above during each subsequent renewal term. In other words, registrants must ensure they remain in compliance with the Nexus Requirement."Application 1-901-9391. Retrieved 15 November 2012 ==References== {{reflist}} [[Category:TLD]]

Domain naming tips

3 basic tips when selecting the right domain name for your website.

Using a local top level domain

If it’s a local business and you want more customers, why not take a look at our domains which are given according to the location you require (.lt , .co.uk, .nyc, .berlin).

Avoid numbers

Avoid the usage of numbers because the people who hear about your website will be having a tough time figuring out if the website contains the number (2) or the number in words (two).

Avoid symbols

Hyphens and dashes will make things complicated and it doesn’t look professional.
