History

On February 17, 2006, the Finnish parliament approved a modification of the laws regulating Finnish domain names to include the .ax top-level domain. During a three year period, the aland.fi subdomain will be phased out while .ax will be used in parallel; no new registrations under the aland.fi subdomain will be accepted, and all current owners of domains under the aland.fi subdomain will receive registrations for the corresponding .ax domain.[1]

On March 17, 2006, Finnish president Tarja Halonen signed the bill into law, effective as of March 27, 2006.[2] The government of Åland began accepting registrations immediately following the changing of the law.

On June 9, ICANN approved delegating the .ax top-level domain to the government of Åland.[3] The .ax domain was added to the root zone on June 21, 2006, and became active on August 15, 2006.[4]

Registration requirements

Domain names can be granted to:

  • A legal person with a set place of business or who is registered on the Åland Islands.
  • A public sector entity, government owned business, independent public institution or public association that is acting on the Åland Islands or has been registered here.
  • A person, at least 15 years of age, whose home municipality is on the Åland Islands or who has the Right of Domicile as defined in the Autonomy Act.[5]
