Is the domain name available or reserved?

If you want to find out whether a certain fi-domain name is available or reserved, use the above search function to check the status of the fi-domain name. The status of the domain name may also provide you more detailed information related to the functionality of the domain name. The details of a reserved domain name also reveal the date when the domain name will be available for application unless the current holder extends the validity of the domain name.

Before reserving a domain name, remember to study the requirements imposed by law. A domain name is reserved through a registrar.

Status of the domain name

If the domain name search returns the result Domain name cannot be registered, it means that the domain name does not meet the formal requirements provided by law and therefore, it cannot be registered.

Who holds a reserved domain name?

If the search result shows that a certain domain name is reserved, you may view the holder's public information. Such public information include at least the holder's name and contact details, if disclosed, as well as the registration date and validity period of the domain name.

If the domain name holder is

  • a private person, only the holder's name is shown by default unless the holder has specifically allowed other information to be displayed
  • a company or an organisation, displaying an email address is optional

You may also check the public information of your own fi-domain names. If you want to update your details in the domain name register, inform your registrar about the changes.
