The province name should be abbreviated, for example BC instead of British Columbia.
For more tips, please see our Knowledgebase article .ca domain registration requirements.
Due to Registry restrictions, WhoisGuard is unavailable for .ca domains.
If you are an individual registering a .ca domain, you may opt out of showing your details on CIRA’s Whois. CIRA stands for Candadian Internet Registration Authority.
To opt out as an individual, select the option ‘Hide registrant data in CIRA WHOIS’ during checkout.
If you are a non-individual, you must show full Registrant information. For more information, please check out our .CA privacy protection article.
You can change the contact details for your domain directly via your Namecheap account.
If your registrant type is Corporation, leave the Organization and Job Title fields empty for at least the Registrant contact section. Please be aware that your Organization name must have a valid name.
When it expires, your website and mail service will stop functioning, and no changes can be made. However, you have a period of about 30 days at Namecheap after the actual expiration date during which you can still renew at the regular rate. Here’s all the information you need.
DNSSEC (Domain Name System Security Extensions) will help make sure that visitors to your website aren’t redirected to fraudulent websites. It adds an extra layer of security on top of the DNS by verifying that the information a user sees is authentic.
DNSSEC is available for .ca domains that use our Basic, Premium and Custom DNS.
There are no coupons to enter. Simply purchase your .ca, and at the checkout you will have the option to add a PositiveSSL Certificate to your cart at an exclusive price – valid for the first year of your registration.
