Millions of people and businesses trust .CA to brand their website as Canadian online.
Whether you're running a local business, are an aspiring entrepreneur, or are just a person with a great idea, a .CA domain name is a great choice for your website.
What can you do with a .CA?
The most obvious use for a domain is to build and host a website or blog. But if you're not quite ready to build a website, there are several other things you can do with your domain, such as creating your own customized .CA email address (i.e. [email protected] yourdomainhere.ca).
Why choose a .CA domain name?
The Canadian connection
There is a Canadian presence requirement for individuals, organizations and businesses to register a .CA domain. It’s the only domain name extension that identifies a website as 100% Canadian.
.CA is an established top-level domain and recognized as a safe, secure and trusted resource for Canadians. CIRA has been managing the registry since 2000.
Avoid thatreallylongdomainnane.com. You might have a better chance of getting the domain name you really want in a .CA.
.CA gives back
Proceeds from every .CA sold are reinvested directly into the Canadian internet community through the Community Investment Program.
Research shows that Canadian internet users prefer to visit and shop on .CA websites.
