HKDNR is pleased to announce that the new Second-Level ‘.hk’ domain name will be launched tentatively by early 2004. The new .hk refers to a shorter domain name category (eg ‘’) as compared to the existing 3rd level categories (eg ‘’).


Why do we recommend .hk to you? Here you will get the answers:

  • You can adopt a shorter ‘.hk’ domain name highlighting your local presence.
  • You can strengthen your branding on the Internet.
  • You can register 2LD with a simplified application procedure (as no documentary proof will be required for new domain name registration).
  • You can find more choices available.
