.CA domain registration requirements

Yes, CIRA, the Canadian organization that operates the .CA registry, requires everyone who registers a domain name with the .CA registry to meet the .CA Canadian Presence Requirements (CPR).

When registering a .CA domain, please use Standard Checkout or have Checkout Settings set up for .CA domains in your account to be able to use Express Checkout.

Here are some more tips for .CA registration not to fail:

  • first and last names should be actual names, not generic ones;
  • initials should be used for the province name (e.g., ON, BC, etc.);
  • phone number should be a Canadian phone number.

Please contact our Live Support in case of any issues with .CA domain registration.

More information about valid formats and data values for .CA domains can be found in the document attached below.
