A Finnish .fi domain name is a good way to stand out from the competition and ensure accessibility to the Finnish market. The domain name does not have to be based on a trademark or business name.
A Finnish domain name can be granted to a company or private entrepreneur, Finnish public body, state enterprise, independent public corporation, public association or a foreign diplomatic mission that has been entered in the Finnish trade register or in the Finnish register of associations or foundations. It can also be granted to a private person of at least 15 years of age who has a Finnish social security number and whose place of domicile is in Finland.
Finnish domain names are granted by the Finnish Communications Regulatory Authority (FICORA), which also intervenes if a business name or trademark is used without permission in domain names.
Berggren is a service provider registered with FICORA.
Disputes related to Finnish domain names are solved by FICORA in accordance with the Domain Name Act. An appeal may be filed with the Administrative Court of Helsinki and subsequently to the Supreme Administrative Court against a decision made by FICORA.
