What are



The .ca domain extension is the country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Canada. It is a great choice for Canadian website owners of all kinds, whether you are creating a personal website, a page for your business or an e-commerce store.

Where did the .ca domain come from?

The .ca domain extension was launched in 1987. In the past, only companies that were nationally incorporated could register a domain directly under .ca. Provincially or locally incorporated companies could only apply for third and fourth-level domain names under an extensive system of local subdomains, including as for the province of Alberta and for the province of Québec. This complicated system led many business owners to favor domains with generic extensions instead, such as .com or .net. The third and fourth-level system was discontinued in 2010, after which second-level .ca domain names became available to everyone.

What is the purpose of the .ca domain name?

.ca domains are a great choice for Canadian individuals, companies and organizations, particularly those that use pricing in Canadian dollars. Using this domain extension can also help benefit your local SEO results within Canada.
