Transfer a domain to DOMAINScanada.ca
It's free to transfer a domain to DOMAINScanada.ca however there is a minimum 1 year renewal required at the time of the domain transfer.
The transfer amount in our pricing schedule is the same price as a renewal for the same period, this is because there are no additional costs for the transfer portion. The extra renewal period you purchase at the time of your domain transfer will be added to your existing registration period from your last registrar. For example, if you have 4 years remaining, and you transfer to us with a 1 year renewal, you will have 5 years remaining on your registration period. View our Domain pricing page for prices.
