History & Purpose
The history of the .FI domain extension is quite uneventful. It was introduced in 1986 and, just like with most ccTLDs in those days, only trademark-holding Finnish companies could register a domain under .FI. Since then, FICORA (Finnish Communications Regulatory Authority) - the entity responsible for the administration of the .FI extension, has gradually loosened the registration requirements.
As of September 2016, anyone in the world can register an .FI domain name. After the liberalization, the market opened up and less than a year later the number of registered .FI domains exceeds 400,000. Given Finlan strong position in the global market, this number will most likely increase.
