One Million Domains

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.
