Set your business up for success
Secure your brand online, drive site traffic and cater to customers with a .CA
Score your desired domain name
With only around 3 million .CA domain names registered – as opposed to over 160 million .com domains, there’s a far better chance the domain you want for your business is available as a .CA!
Get found in local online search results
Your .CA domain name tells Google that your business and website are Canadian. This helps make it far more relevant to visitors searching for local Canadian results.
Create a localized shopping experience for your customers
A .CA domain tells your customers that you charge in CAD dollars, ship to Canada, pay and collect Canadian taxes and you're a local Canadian business.
I chose a .CA domain because being recognized as a local Canadian designer was important to me. I believe it's attractive for many buyers to know that they're supporting local and makes the transaction feel more personal—which it 100% is! I am very proud to have created and built a Canadian made brand, and I wanted my domain to translate that.
