Things To Know About Registering .CA Domains:
.CA DOMAINS ARE SUBJECT TO CANADIAN PRESENCE REQUIREMENTS
You must be Canadian (or the Queen) in order to register .CA domains. No exceptions.
You MUST Confirm your registrant info with CIRA (Canadian Internet Registration Authority) before your new .CA domain will be live on the internet.
The Registrant Confirmation process is a one-time process per Registrant. In other words, if you register your .CA domain to your company, then confirm the Registrant profile of your company with CIRA, you can then add additional .CA domains using the same Registrant info without having to confirm the details every time.
Your Registrar on your .CA domains ends up being easyDNS
easyDNS, the parent company of Zoneedit will be your official registrar-of-record. But you will manage your .CA domains from within your Zoneedit Control Panel.
