Canadians sure do love their internet. We use it for essential things (like work) and for more enjoyable activities (like online shopping!).

But the top online activity that our research study of Canadian internet users found – surprise! –  is one of the oldest, most original internet activities: email.

With so much time spent on email, one thing you can do to stand out is register a domain name and create a customized email address. This will enable you to add a level of professionalism to your emails, whether you are:

  • starting up a new business,
  • a budding freelancer, or
  • sprucing up your online presence while you’re job hunting.

Not ready to build a website?

No problem! You can go ahead and check if the .CA domain name you want is available and select a provider to purchase it from:

A .CA domain declares your business is proudly Canadian

Once you register your domain, you’ll be able to set up your very own email address – you can even connect it to gmail if you’d prefer to use a platform you’re familiar with.
