Information for registrars
At the request of their customers, registrars
- register domain names
- update related details
- renew domain names
- switch domain names from one registrar to another
- transfer domain names from one holder to another
- remove domain names from the register.
Registrars may use resellers in their operations. A reseller may, for instance, offer customer support and invoicing services. However, registrars are always responsible for the operations of their resellers. If a registrar adds the details of its reseller in the fi-domain name register, the details appear in the whois information of fi-domain names under "Reseller".
FICORA monitors that registrars adhere to the provisions in the Information Society Code. FICORA may issue a note to a registrar that violates the Act or rules, regulations or decisions issued by virtue of it.
FICORA supervises registrars’ operations mainly on the basis of notifications submitted by domain name holders. The monitoring is limited to the obligations imposed by the Information Society Code. FICORA is not authorised to settle contractual disputes between domain name holders and registrars.
