I just went through the process of registering my first dot.ca domain and I couldn’t believe how much crap you have to go through just to get one. Dot.ca domains cost twice that of dot.com’s and they make you jump through hoops for no reason.
I accidentally selected the wrong province and it took 5 days to get it straightened out. Anyone else think this process is ridiculus?
Anyways, if anyone is curious (which I doubt) here’s a link to all the documents you have to read.
WHat a joke! That’s so lame…

Hey! I’m pissed! No really, I mean I’m pissed. I’ve been slamming them since 4pm and watch your comments about Canadians, eh! Hoser! (where the **** is my toque?)
So how abooot those leafs eh?
Leafs, eh? I think they’re going all the way, eh!
They could’a’ went all the way last year but…eh?..eh?..he was being a hoser…that sonofa…we all ended up getting pissed…
lol thats horrible. Why didnt you just go through RegisterFly or something?
did you know htey have stuff like .agent and .travel, .shop and so on? Thats crazy, wont catch on tho…
mdipi you have to go through cira (canadian internet registration a hollio’s) to get a dot.ca domain. CIRA is a non-profit government appointed co.
The client wanted .com but that was taken so he wanted .ca.
really cause i just checked and i could buy one from RegFly…oh well. i kinda wanted one, cause .us stinks and i donno if i wanna keep my .com…i prob will tho, since its a .com, and most are gone.
I think he wanted all of you guys to diss the domain registration, not his home country.
Yeah Exactly I agree With "t3h t3rminator "
Im from canada too.
Yeah be nice to Canada everyone hehe
When the US gov’t controlled domain registrations through a private company (NetworkSolutions?) for .com, it was really expensive also. Good thing that monopoly was ended a few years ago. If there are any 3rd party resellers, go with them
mdipi, you can buy them through registerfly but then you have to register them with CIRA. The whole thing is dumb.
