Should I Buy a .CA or .COM Domain?

When should you buy a Canadian .ca domain instead of a .com domain?

It’s a question a lot of people who want a website run into…

The answer is, it depends on how you want to brand yourself. Which means, you need to think for a minute about your market.

When to Buy a .CA Domain

In our opinion, there are two instances when you should purchase a .ca domain name for your website.

  1. You are a Canadian business and/or do business mainly in Canada
  2. You want to have a Canada-specific site for your business’ Canadian branch

Many small business owners in Canada want to clearly indicate their country of operation (or celebrate it proudly!) There is no better way to do that than with a .CA domain.

Not only is a .CA domain good for your brand recognition, it’s helpful in the search engines.

Having .CA in your domain will promote authority in the Canadian marketplace – in the way Google, and consumers interpret your website as a local business.

In summary… You may want to opt-out of the .COM hype as the holy grail for domains, and look at the Canadian counterpart to help build your local presence and authority.

Where to Buy a .CA Domain

When choosing your domain – price is usually a big factor. At CanSpace, we offer the cheapest domains in Canada, guaranteed.

We also include privacy protection for free, so people can’t find out you who you are by searching for your domain. Most domain registrars charge almost double for this, so that’s more savings for you!
