The dot-ca top-level domain (TLD) has just surpassed 1,000,000 domains, and to celebrate, the Canadian Internet Registration Authority (CIRA) has launched the One Million Domains campaign. Soma Design was featured in this promotional site alongside many other interesting uses of the dot-ca TLD.
I was also recently interviewed by IT Business in connection with this campaign, which was a pleasant experience. Later in the same article, it is claimed that 3 in 4 Canadians prefer a dot-ca website when shopping online. That means that you have an instant “in” with your fellow Canadians, if that is indeed your target market.
All in all, I’m quite happy to be on the dot-ca domain, and look forward to the interesting opportunities afforded by being sure that every dot-ca domain is owned by a Canadian individual or business.
