Domain Registration


I believe in .CA

.CA is the only domain name reserved just for Canadians. So when you work in .CA, it works for you. It's like a Canadian flag that says you believe in a safe, secure and trustworthy internet experience.

Canadians are registering their .CA in such numbers that we're growing faster here than our counterparts are in almost every other country. And nearly everyone who holds .CA sites are renewing them, too.

Do I need to be a citizen or registered business in the specific country to register its ccTLD?

Some country-code-Top-Level-Domain (ccTLD) registries are completely open to everyone. Other ccTLD registries do require the registrant to be citizen, resident, business, or simply an address for the respective country. Please check the full set of requirements and information on .CA domain on our wiki.
