Think about it, the .com.hk, .hk domains will, in theory, become obsolete in 2047 when Hong Kong fully reverts back to China.
Does it really even matter?
It’s not actually a major game-changer because I’m sure that in 2047 we will still be using some form of 301 redirects to another domain, very possibly a .cn domain.
The Good Thing About .HK Domains
I love .hk domains because they are relevant in the walled garden which is Hong Kong.
I’m more curoious rather than concerned because I imagine that by 2047 I’ll be long-gone and not working with domains any longer – indeed, who actually know what the future will be with domains and the Internet.
I suspect, however, that .hk domains and domains in general will continue to persevere in much the same way that email doesn’t die. Different channels come and go but email just stays, and I am sure that this will remain the case with Internet domains.
