About fi-domain names

.fi is the country code top-level domain for Finland and it is operated by FICORA. Legislation on fi-domain names regulates the registration and use of fi-domain names.

The top-level domain .fi is part of the hierarchical system of the internet where a domain name functions as an address for a certain service in the internet. The same address may also be presented in a numerical form (IP address) but a domain name, such as ficora.fi, is easier to memorise and to guess.
