Domain Modification

Trade

In order to change the owner of a .FI domain you have to a)request an authcode for the domain and then b)request a trade.

This can be done through our web interface or API:


a) Request authcode for the domain with the special parameter X-FI-REQUESTAUTHCODE

[COMMAND]
(required)                     
command              = TradeDomain
domain               = yourdomain.fi
X-FI-REQUESTAUTHCODE = 1
                     
EOF
  • The current domain holder will receive an email from the registry containing the authcode.


b) Request the trade to the new domain holder with the TradeDomain command.

[COMMAND]
(required)                    
command             = TradeDomain
domain              = yourdomain.fi
auth                = .............
ownercontact0       = [new owner-contact]
X-FI-COMPANY-REG-ID = .............
                    
EOF
  • You have to state the contact handle of the new owner. Please always create a new contact handle and do not use modified contact handles.
  • The trade of the domain will be processed instantly.
  • A .FI domain will not be automatically renewed upon a trade

Domain Renewal

.FI domains can be renewed through the webinterface or with the corresponding API command.

[COMMAND]

command    = RenewDomain

Deletion Process

.FI Domains can be deleted online through the Delete Command and signing a delete request.

X-FI-REQUESTAUTHCODE = 1
                     
EOF

Transfer Notes
