Domain Name Registration
Transfer of Domain Ownership (TNR)
All rights and obligations derived from the domain name’s registration are transferred to the transferee by mutual consent.
HKDNR allows domain name transfer under certain circumstances:
- Domain names upgraded to/registered under the latest HKDNR Registration Agreement;
- Applicants must present the evidence of mutual consent between the Transferor and Transferee when applying for domain name transfer.
