livedoor Co.,Ltd. (株式会社ライブドア, Kabushiki-gaisha raibudoa?) is an Internet service provider that runs a web portal and numerous other businesses. Its headquarters is in the Sumitomo Fudosan Nishishinjuku Building (住友不動産西新宿ビル, Sumitomo Fudōsan Nishi-Shinjuku Biru?) in Nishi-Shinjuku, Shinjuku, Tokyo.

The company was founded and led in its first 10 years by Takafumi Horie, known as "Horiemon" in Japan. Employing over 1,000 people, it had grown into one of Japan's premier Internet businesses as well as one of the country's most controversial enterprises because of its frequent use of acquisitions and stock swap mergers to achieve growth, before being brought down by fraud scandals and bought by Korean web portal NHN.
