JPNIC and JPRS publish "History of Internet Resources Management in Japan - Focusing on Domain Name and IP Address".

JPNIC and JPRS today release the English website "History of Internet Resource Management in Japan - Focusing on Domain Names and IP Addresses" to help people all around the world know more about the development of the Internet in Japan since its emergence.

JPNIC, a National Internet Registry and an Internet promotion body, and JPRS, the ccTLD registry for .JP which was spun off from and succeeded the .JP registry of JPNIC, have been collaboratively working to compile a comprehensive history of the Internet from a Japanese perspective, focusing on Internet resource management. As another outcome of our activities, and as part of JPNIC's 20th anniversary celebrations, we published in 2013 "The Internet Timeline" covering some of major global Internet event, both in Japanese and English.

"History of Internet Resource Management in Japan", was originally compiled in Japanese in 2013, too. It is translated this time in English to make it more accessible both for experts and those without expertise in this field. We believe that a Japanese perspective of Internet resource management history can be an interesting and useful reference for people around the world. If you are interested, please do have a look. We hope you will enjoy it.

The entire English content was edited by Mr. Gerard Ross, the former Communication Manager at APNIC who also recently compiled the history of APNIC. The smoothness of the language is thanks to his effort, which JPNIC and JPRS appreciate very much.
