February Record Month for .FI Domain Registrations

The global financial crisis appears to be bypassing domain registrations in Finland with the Finnish Communications Regulatory Authority (FICORA) announcing a record number of 4,130 new .fi domain names. The number is eleven per cent more than in February 2008 and over 30% more than in February 2007.

The reason for the strong demand for .fi domain names, according to FICORA, is the general growth in the sector and, especially, the one-year period of validity which was introduced at the beginning of the year. In February, 38 per cent of the new .fi domain names were registered for one year.
