HERE’S WHY YOU SHOULD CHOOSE .CA
It’s 100% Canadian
There is a Canadian presence requirement for individuals, organizations and businesses to register a .CA domain. .CA is the only domain that instantly identifies you and your website as 100% Canadian.
It’s more likely to be available
With only 2.6 million .CA’s registered, it’s far more likely that you will find the domain name that you want on a .CA than on other popular TLDs.
CA is safe, secure and trusted online
.CA is a well-established and widely trusted top-level domain. For over 30 years, .CA has been a safe and secure resource for Canadians online.
Canadians prefer .CA websites
79% of Canadians prefer to visit and shop on Canadian websites4. Your .CA domain can improve your performance in search engines, helping you attract and land new customers online.
.CA gives back
A portion of the proceeds of .CA registrations goes toward funding innovative projects that give back to Canadian communities through the Community Investment Program. Just by registering a .CA, you’re helping build a better online Canada. 8 Choose your .CA now!
While CIRA’s number one priority is the safe and secure management of Canada’s top-level domain, we also have a mandate to do good things for the Internet in Canada. In early 2014, CIRA launched the Community Investment Program (CIP), which gives back by funding innovative community projects such as Be the Choice – a Canadian non-profit organization dedicated to making breast cancer treatment information accessible and participatory by providing an interactive, fully bilingual, digital platform that enables patients and their advocates to navigate the labyrinth of clinical terms and pathways that accompany a diagnosis. The platform can be found at bethechoice.ca.
