.hm FAQ

What name can I register?

Upon application for registration applicants agree to be bound by terms and conditions of the HM Domain Registry which may change from time to time.

Obscene or otherwise offensive domain names are not acceptable. Domains which imply an interest in the management of the HM domain space are similarly not permitted.

Registration of surnames (as contained in a reputable database) is not permitted. Surnames are reserved for the use of MY.HM, a provider of email and related services who has supported the operation of the HM Domain Registry and the trust for the benefit of the Heard and McDonald Islands. If you are interested in obtaining these services you should contact directly.

HM Domain Registry and the administrators of the HM zone reserve the right to refuse application, suspend or cancel registration of any domain.

In the case of conflicting name requests between an applicant and an existing listing held by the registry it is left to the parties concerned (applicant and listed entity) to resolve such matters and report to the registry if the resolution involves a change of registration details.

All registration information is considered to be information in the public domain and may be made accessible using the Internet cpr144449003101 as the publication vehicle. No provision is made concerning acceptance of information under any imposed condition of confidentiality or non-disclosure.

The use of unsolicited email as an advertising technique is not tolerated by the Registry. Any unsolicited email:

(i) advertising a URL within .HM
(ii) apparently sourced from a server within a .HM domain
(iii) with a source or reply-to address within a .HM domain

may result in termination of service and/or removal of the affected domain and other related domains from the dns zone files. (Related domains means domains which have a registrant or contact details in common with the affected domain.)
