Fi domain name registration requirements
Finland’s country code domain extension is “.FI”. Before we move on to the Fi domain name registration requirements, let’s discuss a little bit about Finland.
Finland is located in Northern Europe. The country shares its borders with Sweden, Norway, and Russia. However, Finland is the eighth largest in the European Union, but the population is not high, just around five million. In fact, you will find more trees in Finland than humans. Internet users are high up to 90%, and when you have a “.FI domain” for your Finnish business, it can grow easily in Finland.
To register the “.Fi” domain, there are various requirements, and if you want to purchase the “.Fi” domain, then you must know and understand these requirements.
So, read these requirements and terms thoroughly if you are planning to buy a Fi domain name for your business.
Ensure your new fi domain name is legal
Now the first thing that you should is to check whether the domain name you intend to buy is available or not. If the title is not registered, you can buy it.
Moreover, when registering the domain name, ensure that it is legal. In Finland, domain holders are entirely responsible for this. To check whether the domain name is lawful or not, read these requirements and points:
Your desired domain name should not infringe any other trademark or name acquire by any other person or organization. Similarly, your domain name should not resemble the trademarks.
The violation of these terms will result in the confiscating of your domain if someone complains.
Besides, it is also compulsory to register the “.Fi” domain on the actual user’s name to ensure the rights are fulfilled appropriately. So, if someone buys or sells the domain name in Finland on your behalf, he must use your actual name for this purpose according to the law.
Some other requirements to own and register the “.Fi” domain names are:
Any person or organization can apply for the “.Fi” domain from across the globe. In the case of individuals, a person should submit a birth date, and the organization must submit their VAT code when registering a “.Fi” domain.
Some other details that you will have to submit during the process include your nationality, residence, street address, and contact number.
Technical requirements of fi domains
Some other technical requirements that you might encounter when registering the “.Fi” domains are as follow:
Your desired domain title may include numbers (0-9) alphabets “a-z” and a dash-minus sign (-). However, you can also use some Finnish native characters such as ä, ö, and å in your domain name.
We will not recommend you to opt for the IDN (Internationalized Domain Name) domain to use as your primary domain because it can cause several compatibility issues and has various technical limitations. For example it is better to register mokkiylojarvi.fi (mökki means cabin and Ylöjärvi is a city) as a main domain and add mökkiylöjärvi.fi as a forward to the main domain.
