Useful information about .hm domains

Trends & General Information

The .hm domain is a more exotic domain extension: Since July 1997 it exists as the official Internet country code top-level domain of the Heard and McDonald Islands. The islands are Australian territory since 1947, although they are approximately 3,800 kilometres away from the Australian continent. The Heard and McDonald Islands are uninhabited, so a national use is not possible.

Because of this, every Internet user worldwide is allowed to buy and register an own .hm domain. The "HM domain registry" located in Australia manages the registered domains.
