The Japanese GMO Registry has received support from the Osaka Prefectural Government to operate the .OSAKA gTLD, should the application to ICANN be successful.

The letter of support from the government follows an evaluation of GMO’s bid. While already moving forward with its ICANN application for the .OSAKA extension, GMO Registry is preparing a marketing strategy aimed at growing awareness of the Osaka brand throughout industries including tourism, commerce, culture, and sport, both within Japan and internationally.

The evaluation of applicants took into account registration policy, operational policy, vision, business planning, service content and compliance with relevant laws.
