About album.hk domain names 

Why would I need a domain name?

A domain name allows your friends or customers to find you at your unique root address on the Internet. Using a domain name you are making your album web site more accessible to your visitors. Besides, your album will get a more professional profile.


How much does it cost?

Free user - Free of charge. The free user can use an album name free of charge until other people are intend to be the premium user of the domain.

Premium user - Paid the annual premium fee US$5. The premium user can use an album name and keep the name after the annual premium fee is paid.

Third level album.hk domain names are free of charge for free user but provided under the condition you keep your contact information updated and without any body interest in being the premium user of the name. If somebody interested in the domain name, which you are the free user, we will inform you to upgrade to be the premium user of the domain name and pay the annual premium fee. If you do not register as the premium user in 72 hours, the name will be transfer to the new premium user.   


How long can I keep a domain name?

Indefinitely, while you paid the premium fee annually, do not violate our terms of service and while there is no other people want to be the premium user of your name if you are free user.

There is no limit. Any person or single organization located anywhere in the world may register any number of names as long as they follow our terms and conditions.



What is the difference between album.hk and a .com domain name?

The major difference between a album.hk domain and a .com domain is that album.hk is new and consequently most names are available. Whereas .com is associated with companies, album.hk can be used by as an album especially in Hong Kong. Both, album.hk and .com domain names have identical global access.


Can I delegate a album.hk domain like a .com domain?

No. At this moment, the album.hk name is just design for web forwarding. It is not possible for the user to configure it to use DNS service. We may expand the service if the need is there.


How long after registration application is submitted will it take for a name to become active on the Internet and how will you be notified?

When your registration is successfully processed, you will be notified immediately by email. It is important that the email address be a working address or your registration may fail. Your domain name will become active on the Internet immediately.


Is it possible to register myname.album or myname.hk?

Unfortunately not for "album", because it is not a top level domain. Top level domains are for example "com", "net", "info" and "biz". You can register a domain like myname.hk but you have to buy it at HKDNR.


Will you add other domain extensions such as myname.xxx.hk or myname.yyy.hk?

We like album.hk because it sounds good, it's quite short and easy to type, spell and to remember. If we find another domain with all these features (and not registered by someone else) it will be added to our service.


What characters can an album.hk domain name have?

Names may not begin or end with a dash, and upper case and lower case are treated as lower case only. Besides the - character, only alpha characters a-z are accepted. As few as 3 and as many as 20 characters are permitted.


The domain name I want is taken, what can I do?

You can try different variations of the requested name. For example, myname.album.hk, my-name.album.hk or any other variation of what you want. Remember, information to the left of the album.hk is not case sensitive so variations in capitalization will not work. MYname.album.hk won't work if myname.album.hk is already taken.


Once I register my album.hk domain name, how do I access my web site?

If your registration was successful you can access your web site by typing www.yourname.album.hk.


I don't receive the mail with the activation code. What should I do?

Try to sign up again. If the process fails again, sign up from another e-mail address. Make sure the messages are not blocked by a spam filter.
