Not very much used
Some domain names may be classified by the registry as a premium domain name and will command a higher price. If you request a premium domain name we will contact you before completing your order.
In addition, the registry may at any time reserve domain names from registration or the sale may be restricted to comply with ICANN requirements.
There has been limited use of this top-level domain, most of it unrelated in any way to the Heard and McDonald Islands. For instance, my.hm issues firstname.lastname.hm in a manner similar to the .name registry. Orz.hm is a dynamic DNS server while gbr.hm sells subdomains within its .hm domains to sites within Great Britain.
Often, these sites are presented in such a way as to re-purpose .hm to mean "home".
Oddly, the Australian government's official website for Heard Island conservation efforts is heardisland.aq, an Antarctic domain and not part of .hm.
