New categories under cctld

New Categories under .香港 ccTLD


Bundling of hk and

Bundling of .hk and .香港

  • Both English and Chinese are used in Hong Kong – a bi-lingual city

  • .hk websites should be given both an English and Chinese URLs

  • For every .hk domain name registered, the registrant can pick a .香港 name for free

  • Also both traditional and simplified Chinese versions of the registered names under .香港 can be used

  • Effectively “Buy one get two” – offer is optional

  • The “bundle” will have to be renewed and transferred together. Both names must have same expiry date and same contact information


Bundling of hk and cont d

Bundling of .hk and .香港 (cont’d)

Bundling must be for same categories only


Special considerations

Special Considerations

  • The name registered under .香港 must have at least one Chinese character – can be a mix of Chinese, English and numeric digits

  • Some customers would like to register an EDN.香港 with valid reasons

  • Mixed categories such as .公司.hk will not be open for new registration afterwards – existing domain names under these categories can still be used and renewed

  • Registrants can choose the free name later – but no later than 9 months after the registration of the paid one. The expiry date of the free name will be the same as the paid name


Pre launch priority registration plpr

Pre-launch Priority Registration (PLPR)

  • Existing EDN.hk registrants will be given first opportunity to choose their free CDN.香港 before full launch of .香港

  • Also, all existing CDN.xxx.hk registrants will be given an CDN.xxx.香港 for free, and they can also pick a free EDN.xxx.hk as well

  • New registrants during the PLPR will be given a “coupon” to claim their free names after the PLPR is completed

  • Applications during PLPR will be collected and processed as a batch. A process will be in place to handle multiple applications for the same domain name. A process for objection against our decisions to resolve “colliding” applications will also be in place.


Handling colliding applications during plpr

Handling colliding applications during PLPR

  • Decision to be based on

    • Availability of trademarks

    • “Similarity” test – is the Chinese name related to the English name and in what way

    • Type of registrants

    • Commencement date of the EDN.xxx.hk
