A .CA domain name makes you or your company instantly recognizable as Canadian to Internet users around the world. To register a .CA domain name an applicant must have a connection to Canada.
Nobody owns a .CA domain name. They are registered for a period of time by individuals or organizations.
Domain names are registered on a first-come, first-served basis. You can register a .CA domain name for up to 10 years – provided it’s not already registered by someone else.
