.konami is a domain for KONAMI CORPORATION and its stakeholders. The primary purpose of .konami is to consolidate KONAMI CORPORATION-related domain names registered under various TLDs into an official .konami extension. In addition, KONAMI CORPORATION aims to achieve the following goals with .konami:

1. Alleviating user confusion and improving convenience for Internet users
KONAMI CORPORATION is a global company in the fields of Digital Entertainment Business, Gaming & Systems Business, Pachinko & Pachinko Slot Machines Business and Health & Fitness Business.
The company has registered many domain names under various gTLDs and ccTLDs not only for actual use but also as a trademark protection measure. Despite these efforts, there exist many domain name registrations and websites that infringe KONAMI CORPORATION’s trademarks. As a result, Internet users often have difficulty differentiating bona fide websites from fraudulent ones. Positioning .konami as the official domain for the company, and unifying the company⁄brand’s web presence under .konami, would provide easy access and interaction, which the company believes would reduce confusion and improve user experience.

2. Marketing ⁄ Branding
Since .konami is a brand new TLD that directly represents the company⁄brand name, the Applicant expects it to be a highly effective marketing and branding tool. The Applicant believes that .konami will not only reinforce KONAMI CORPORATION’s brand on the Internet, but also attract people to visit the website because .konami domain names make it easier for Internet users to access to the information related to the company.

3. Simplifying domain name management
The third purpose for applying for .konami is to simplify the management of domain names the Applicant has registered. As stated earlier, KONAMI CORPORATION has many domain names under the various TLDs, posing a challenge in dealing with different registration and operation rules, log-in systems, etc. .konami would make it possible to manage domain names under the .konami rules and systems umbrella and would replace various KONAMI CORPORATION related domain names with .konami domain names. As a consequence, it will be safer and easier for the .konami stakeholders to manage their domain names.
