HONG KONG, 23 May 2013 – Hong Kong Domain Name Registration Company Limited (HKDNR) today launched its free Minisite service to help customers set up a simple website when registering .hk and .香港 domain names. This new service will enable them to benefit from the domain name once registered and closely connect with their target audience online with minimal delay.

“As of end of April this year, the number of .hk and .香港 domain names registered reached over 245,000. However, about 20% of them are not currently in use. We therefore introduced the Minisite service with an aim to encourage more users to quickly make use of their domain names. Through the service, they can build a simple website to promote their products and services in the shortest period of time. Otherwise, the domain name will be left dormant and the registration fee is simply wasted. Once they realise the benefits of having a website, users will be motivated to build their full websites through ISPs or web hosting companies,” said Mr. Jonathan Shea, CEO of HKDNR.

From now on, existing registrants of .hk or .香港 who have not used their domain name can enjoy the Minisite service by logging into the domain management account page under www.hkdnr.hk and filling out simple information such as company background. Users who register a new .hk or .香港 domain name on the HKDNR webpage are also entitled to the free Minisite service and can swiftly connect with their target audience via the Internet.

In addition, HKDNR offers free URL redirection service for users to point their multiple registered .hk / .香港 domain names to one designated website. This will help them better manage their online identity in an effective manner. As a result, their target audience can easily access their websites with any of their registered domain names.
