FICORA proposes reduction in fi-domain name fees

4.12.2009
FICORA has proposed to the Ministry of Transport and Communications that the fees collected for fi-domain names are dropped as of 4 January 2010. In the future, the application, transfer or renewal of a fi-domain name costs EUR 13/1 year, EUR 36/3 years or EUR 55/5 years.

Domain name fees will be dropped so that fi-domain name activities would defray the costs in the future, too.

The number of granted fi-domain names has increased substantially in 2009. According to an estimate, the total number of new domain names granted in 2009 will be 45,000.
