TOKYO, Aug 1, 2016 – (ACN Newswire) – JCB Co., Ltd. (JCB), the only international payments brand based in Japan, is pleased to announce that it will launch a new JCB global website on August 3 2016.
The website has a portal function to link to a wide range of other JCB websites in many countries/territories, and is a new and easy-to-navigate website that offers comprehensive information about JCB corporate, products and services. At the same time as this release, some more new regional websites will also be released for countries and regions where JCB cards are issued, Vietnam, Hong Kong, Indonesia and Russia, in addition to the existing websites for China, Taiwan, Korea, the Philippines and Europe. We will provide attractive contents for all JCB customers.
Also the JCB global website uses a top level domain*, “.jcb,” based on our concept of universal design that does not rely on languages or countries/territories. This domain is easy to understand and remember for customers, and can only be used by JCB, reducing the risk of counterfeiting or spoofing, and allowing customers to use the websites more safely.
* A top level domain is the rightmost portion of the site URL or e-mail address.
