With our headquarters in Australia, Asia is a natural market for us, with many parts of Asia being geographically close (in a relative sense) and sharing a similar timezone.

sublime//ip has provided domain name services in Asia for 10 years in two complementary ways:

  • Asian-based clients requiring domain services within Asia and elsewhere in the world
  • Clients from Australia and other parts of the world seeking to protect their brands or promote products and services using Asian domain names

Domain Name Management

sublime//ip holds registrar accreditation in various countries in Asia, such as the Philipines, and liases directly with the registry in others or utilises the services of reputable local registrars.

A number of our key clients and suppliers are based in Asia and particularly in Japan, Singapore and Hong Kong.

Our domain name registration services cover most countries in Asia with particular expertise in Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore, the Philipines, Malaysia, South Korea, Taiwan and China. We are also able to register names in Vietnam, Indonesia and other countries on request.

When it comes to registering domain names, some Asian countries require a local company registration or agent. In the case where a local administrative agent is all that is required to meet domain name regulations, such as in Singapore, we can provide a local agent if required.

Some Asian countries allow registration to foreign companies, and we can provide domain registration services to clients located anywhere in the world in these countries. This includes the Philipines, China and Taiwan among others.

Finally, some Asian countries have more stringent local presence requirements such as Hong Kong, Korea, Malaysia and domains in Japan. We can provide domain registration subject to there being a local company registration, or, in some cases may be able to refer you to a reputable company formation specialist in the relevant jurisdiction if necessary.


sublime//ip can offer hosting services to clients in most parts of Asia. Local hosting is particularly important in Asia due to the very high rates of broadband penetration in the region, particularly in Japan and Korea. With many users using broadband cable or ADSL, having fast and reliable local hosting is important.

sublime//ip can provide dedicated server hosting and colocation services locally in Japan (Tokyo, Osaka, Sapporo) as well as Hong Kong, Shanghai, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and more. A complete list of our Asian data center locations can be found on our data center world map.

In addition, we can provide Asian clients with hosting solutions outside of the region. This may be benefical for backup or additional redundancy purposes, as well as to deliver content nearer to end-users residing in Australia, Europe or the U.S.A.

Our hosting services include:

  • Server colocation (telehousing)
  • Dedicated servers
  • Email services (POP3, webmail, forwarding, IMAP, managed Exchange)
  • Managed DNS (Domain Name Service)
  • Virtual web hosting
