Q2: What is account management?

A: Before you begin to manage your domain name e.g. modification of name server, modification of domain name information etc, you have to log on to User account by inputting the Account Name and password after pressing ‘Login’ button on the right upper corner on our homepage. Account name is the administrative contact handle ID of any one of your domain names. You can check it out on WHOIS or press Forgot Password? / Forgot Account Name?. After logging in, you can manage all the domain names grouped with the same administrative contact.

As there was no User Account management before, you can group all the domain names into one account by changing the administrative contact Handle ID.

Q4: What is Host Management?

A: If the domain name you registered is used as a hostname, you can change the IP address connecting to the hostname by doing ‘Modify Host’. You do not have to change the IP address on each domain name again. Or if you want to create relationship between .hk domain hostname and IP address, you can do ‘Add Host’. All the hostname ended with .hk has to be registered host.
