DomainReport.ca - A new .ca domain registrar has just launched called CanSpace Solutions (www.canspace.ca).
This new registrar plans to make their mark in the .ca space by offering the lowest registration prices. They also intend to offer excellent support and build a strong reputation.
"Our live support is online about 20 hours a day, and all of our support staff is very knowledgeable about CIRA and the back-end processes. The domain control-panel is very straightforward and easy to use, and we do offer bulk registration and transfer tools."
The Canspace yearly dot-ca registration/transfer price is $9.75 per year. As far as I know this is one of the lowest, if not the lowest, price in Canada.
Canspace told me their goal is to always have the lowest price for .ca registration.
Canspace has also provided a promotional code I can pass along which will make domain name registrations and transfers $9.49 per year. The code is XMAS09-CA119 and runs until December 25th.
A bit about the company and person behind it...
Canspace was started and is owned by Sunil Singh. Sunil is a programmer by nature and education, and has a B.Sc in Computer Science from McMaster University. He has been in the web hosting & domain business for about 13 years now. Sunil started CanSpace because he felt there is still room to compete in the dot-ca registration market, and as the dot-com and dot-net TLDs continue to become overly saturated, he feels dot-ca domains will become even more popular. Sunil is a proud Canadian, born in Ottawa and fluent in both English and French.
I have to say I agree with Sunil's outlook on the .ca space!
I haven't yet registered a domain with Canspace, but I did want to report the news of their opening. There is always room for another registrar that offers low prices and good service. I also think they chose a good domain for their company.
