Domain Name Registration
Domain Deletion (DEL)
The following parties can perform deletion of the domain name:
- Domain name holder
- Authorized parties by the domain name holder
- Domain name registry (HKDNR)
Procedures for deleting a domain name:
- Login to your account with Username and Password.
- Click on ‘My Domain’ and select ‘Delete Domain’.
- Enter the domain name and then follow the online instructions to complete the procedures.
It is free of charge.
No document is needed except a special request is made by HKDNR.
Only the domain name owner can object to the deletion by sending an email request to us at firstname.lastname@example.org for investigation.
It will be completed within SEVEN (7) calendar days after the application has been processed.
You will receive an email notification advising the effective date.
After the domain is deleted or when it is not renewed, it will enter a 60-day Blackout Period. During that period the domain is neither resolvable nor available for registration. Under normal circumstances, the domain will be open for registration again right after the Blackout Period.
For the domain names registered under the Old Agreement, HKDNR reserves the right to recover any inactive cases registered but are on hold for more than NINETY (90) days due to lacking valid name service. Therefore, if your domain name is on hold with invalid name server details, we shall recover your domain name.
To re-activate your domain name, the domain name holder should send a request to email@example.com to cancel the deletion.
