“When I had to choose a web address, the obvious choice was a .CA over a .com. Anybody can be a .com, but only a Canadian company can have a .CA.”
“With the trends in the food industry in the last 10 years, towards people wanting to know where their food comes from… it’s really important for us to stand out as a small Canadian producer. The .CA does that for you right away.”
A .CA domain name isn’t owned. Instead, an available domain name can be registered for up to 10 years by individuals or organizations. Because of this, it’s important to make sure you manage your .CA domain name effectively. As your online identity, you want to protect your .CA domain name like any other business, social or personal asset.
The Canadian Internet Registration Authority (CIRA) plays a critical role in ensuring that key parts of the Internet’s domain name system (DNS) infrastructure in Canada are continuously and securely available to all Canadians.
