FICORA is promising to introduce an improved registry service for .FI domain names next week that they say will offers users a more user-friendly way of applying for, renewing, terminating and paying for .FI domain names taking into consideration the modern requirements for electronic services better than before.
The renewed service introduces DNSSEC support to improve the information security of FI domain names. The service also contains full IPv6 support, which is critical since it is believed that IPv6 connections will grow strongly in the future as available IPv4 addresses can no longer be assigned.
The improvements in the service contain added information on domain names for different user groups, such as companies, organisations and private persons. The service provides answers to such questions as who is entitled to apply for a domain name, to whom are FI domain names granted, what can be registered as a domain name, what are domain names used for and how are they applied for.
The service has a specific section for service providers who can be authorized to apply for a domain name and assist domain name applicants in matters concerning the name server, server status and email servers.
To implement the new service, which also includes a new website that is currently working, it will not be possible to apply for new .FI domain names or make changes to existing ones this weekend, from 08:00 Saturday 17 September till 10:00 Monday 19 September local Finnish time.
