When to choose a .CA for your business

You should get a .CA if you’re…

A local, Canadian business 

Restaurants are the ultimate example. If you’re operating a restaurant in Canada, you can expect that all your website visitors will be in your area, so a .CA domain is the best fit. 

A business that sells products or services to the Canadian market 

Choosing a .CA domain for your business tells your customers at first glance that your prices are in Canadian dollars and that you ship to Canada. 

A business that operates in many countries, including Canada 

It is important to have a version of your business’s website that is modified specifically for a Canadian audience— a great way to start is getting a .CA domain. You can register the .com version of your domain as well if you are planning to target an international audience or if you want to protect your brand.
