Geo gTLDs

Put your city to the right of the dot

  • Share your unique, city brand off just like .tokyo, .nyc and .boston. 
  • Every business, city department, every citizen can get a web address that shows off their locale.
  • We’ve been managing .ca for Canada since the Great One played hockey – who better to help Canadian cities navigate their own TLD registry?
  • We provide education on domain industry lingo and processes, including presence requirements and help with the ICANN application (that’ll allow you to run your TLD registry). 


CIRA’s platform is the easiest way to manage your domain

  • Operating your own brand TLD doesn’t have to come at a heavy cost to your team and to your wallet.
  • Our next-generation platform gives you the features, functionality and flexibility to run every facet of your dot brand registry.
  • Get the same world-class product and support used by many ccTLDs and gTLDs.


Looking to switch providers?

  • CIRA offers so much more than a platform that meets (all) your business needs. We’ll also take care of ICANN compliance, including escrow uploads, abuse monitoring and automatic reporting.
  • Unlock capabilities your current platform doesn’t provide: business reporting, invoicing and more.
  • We’ll also connect you with our registrar partners to help build your channel.
