Please ensure that your email address is valid, as all account information, invoices and customer service messages are sent primarily by email. Please check that your email is not, for example, full or otherwise non-functional. Messages often contain technical information and may be considered spam by many email providers. So please check your spam for spam messages as well. It is important that your contact details are always up to date. Contact details should be updated in the control panel and notified to our customer service team in writing (email or letter).
Invoices for services are primarily sent to e-mail. The e-mail message contains information about the invoice that can be used to pay it by bank transfer from a bank of your needs.

Domain name delivery will not start until the full payment has been made. Payment card and PayPal automatically register immediately after the payment has been made. The order is binding and valid until further notice. The right of withdrawal (14 days) does not apply to domains or their share of the price of the order. Domain name transfer is subject to a standard domain name fee and the validity of the domain name is increased according to the billing period. Domain transfer itself is free of charge.
The period of validity indicated on the domain name invoice is indicative and the actual period of validity depends on the date of delivery of the domain name and, in the case of a transfer, the previous period of validity of the domain name, when the earlier period of validity is postponed to the end of invoicing. However, the domain name is valid for at least the time marked on the invoice.
It is imperative that the subscriber of the domain name ensures the legality of the domain name they have subscribed to (see section 4.1). instructions on legality).
Domain names containing national characters (e.g., uh, etc.) are not recommended as the primary domain name (see IAS 19, 2004). instructions on national characters).
Domain names are always under the control of the customer. However, by default, the WHOIS information for the domain name is set to Suncomet's information to protect your privacy. The WHOIS data does not affect the contracts between Suncomet and the customer or the domain name management relationship. The WHOIS can be set to any information the customer wishes. Changing WHOIS data is a chargeable service. Among domain names, .fi domains have a special status and .fi domains will always include the customer's details, which must also be kept up to date in accordance with the law.

Switch between providers
keywords: transfer broker exchange EPP auth code authorization key transfer ID
When switching to a service provider, your domain name, pages, emails or other information stored in the service will not be automatically transferred. In principle, the customer is responsible for transferring their data and updating applications and email settings. In addition, the customer must acquire all the necessary information for transfers and the new service provider often does not have the opportunity or even the authority to obtain this information on behalf of the customer.
We offer a turnkey service for data transfer and service provider switching.
Domain transfer can be ordered from our online store.
When you transfer a domain name, you must unlock the domain. Any DNSSEC settings for the domain must also be removed. For the transfer, you will need a domain name broker's exchange key, which you will receive from the current service provider. The exchange key can also be called: EPP, auth code, authorization key, transfer ID, etc.
Upon completion of the migration, the domain name servers will be updated to point to Suncomet's server at the request of the client.
Some domain extensions require that the transfer be accepted from the whois e-mail address of the domain. The transfer is confirmed by going to and from the address provided by the email by clicking the transfer confirmation button (I Authorize, I Accept, I Approve, etc.).
If necessary, you can ask your old service provider to complete all of the above points and provide the necessary information for the transfer. A domain transfer can take up to 14 days in total.
When a domain name is transferred to our service, its name service and email settings change to the default settings of our service. If you want to point your domain e-mail services or subdomains elsewhere, you must change these settings from the dashboard before you go to the domain.
Contact information, billing information and communication
keywords: contact information personal data address change spam, recycle bin, invoice
Keeping up-to-date contact details is particularly important. In the worst case, outdated contact information can lead to a temporary closure of the service or loss of your domain name.
Our services include four types of contact information: billing contact information, contact information for the contact person, technical contact information in the dashboard, and domain name contact information (WHOIS).
Billing contact information is used to manage your billing. It is important to keep them up to date so that our billing department can contact you if necessary. You can update your billing contact details in the customer system.
The contact's contact information is used to handle the affairs of the account. Contact information is used in situations when our customer service services need to contact the customer and when the customer contacts our customer service. Each order is under one contact and only the contact can manage the information in the order. Contact information can also be updated from the customer system.
In the control panel, you can set an email address to which control panel, the server or our customer service will send technical messages related to your account. This includes information about disk space fill, certificate expiry and password changes. You can also use the same email to reset your account password if necessary. You can set up an account contact email from the Contact Information section of the admin panel. From the same place, you can also set which notifications you want to receive. The technical bulletins related to the services and their RSS feed can be found on their own pages.
The contact details of the domain name are reported to the registry and partly also publicly to the WHOIS database. Keeping the contact details of domain names up-to-date is based on the Act (Article 167 of the Information Society Code 2014/917) and failure to do so may even lead to the removal of the domain name (Article 169 of the Information Society Code 2014/917). You can update your domain contact information through our customer system and customer service.
Invoices sent to a customer, account information, or other technical messages can easily be sent to the Recycle Bin or spam folder because of the technical information they contain. Therefore suncomet.fi and suncomet.com should be added to the list of (safe) senders specifically allowed in emails.
