The Nexus Requirement is required in order to establish and maintain a dedicated Internet namespace to serve the Osaka Community.

Therefore, to register a domain name under the .OSAKA Top Level Domain at any stage in the launch (i.e. Sunrise, Landrush or General Availability) the Registrant (person or entity) must meet the Nexus Requirement.

Eligible registrants include, but are not limited to:

1. Osaka municipalities and local governments

2. Public and private institutions in Osaka Area

3. Organizations, companies, and other businesses/entities in Osaka

4. Residents of Osaka

5. Others who have a legitimate purpose for registering and using a „.OSAKA” domain.

To register and renew a .OSAKA domain name, the Registrant must be an individual or legal entity with a bona fide presence in the Osaka area of Japan at the time of registration and thereafter; in other words, registrants must ensure they remain in compliance with the Nexus Requirement at all times. Registrants must be able to prove that one or more of the criteria set forth above are satisfied.

A Registrant will certify that agreeing to these Terms and Conditions when registering a domain name via an Accredited Registrar satisfies eligibility requirements.


Please note that some of the policies may not be uploaded by now. We would like to request you to check the site frequently for updated policies.


.OSAKA transfers are possible. Upon successfully transferring a domain, it is automatically renewed for one year. The registration period is extended by one year.

Transfer procedure

  • .OSAKA Transfers can either be done through the RRPproxy WebInterface or API.
command = TransferDomain
domain  =
action  = request
auth    = .....
  • After the transfer has been requested, our backend system sends a confirmation email to the Owner/Admin-C according to the WHOIS of the respective domain. In order to initiate the transfer successfully it is important, that this email is confirmed.
  • After confirmation the transfer is initiated through the official registry and the losing registrar will receive the transfer request.
  • The losing registrar will also send an email to the Owner/Admin-C. allowing him/her to deny the transfer. If you do not respond to the email of the losing registrar, then the transfer will get processed successfully after 5 days.
Attention.png If the Email-Address in the WHOIS is invalid, then the transfer cannot be processed.If this is the case, then kindly contact your current registrar and ask him to update the WHOIS information accordingly.

Transfer notes

  • A .OSAKA Domain Transfer must be initiated with a so-called Authorisation Code, which can be obtained from the current registrar through the owner or Admin-C of the domain.
  • Ensure that your respective domain does not have a lock-status (REGISTRAR-LOCK or HOLD). This can be seen in the WHOIS.
    If the domain is locked, then the owner can demand that the domain will be unlocked.
  • Please note that we are only allowed to initiate a gTLD transfer after confirmation of the "ICANN Form of Authorization" by the current registrant. The policies can be viewed under
  • After a successful transfer of the domain, it will be transfer locked from the registry for a period of 60 days.

Transfer time

A transfer takes 5 days to complete.


Restores are possible within 30 days upon deletion. A restore can be done via API command or via webinterface.
