How long should a domain name be?
Shorter is usually better; it’s easier to remember and reduces the room for error when it is typed into a web browser. It’s perfect for marketing and printed materials (like business cards, store signs or pamphlets) or merchandise (like t-shirts and hats).
About half of currently registered .CA domain names are between five and 12 characters long. Really short domains (less than five characters) are nifty, but like parking spaces at a Canadian Tire on December 24, many of the good ones are taken or are in high demand in the domain name aftermarket.
