Excerpted from the website description:
- The name of this domain is www.ne.jp, NOT ne.jp. Japanese domain names, like those of many countries other than the United States, consist of three parts rather than just two (compare a typical American domain like "aol.com"). We just happened to register the word "www" as the private part of our name -- the Japanese equivalent to the US domain www.net. In other words, the "www" part is not simply an indicator of where the home page resides, as in most cases, but is actually the name itself.
