.CA domain name appraisal service launched

The first domain name appraisal service that specifically deals with .ca domains was launched today. Here is a copy of the news release:


This week saw the launch of Canada's only Canadian domain name appraisal service.

"It's an exciting time to be registering and developing businesses on dot ca domain names. Canada is one of the most connected nations on earth whether that be people using their home or office computer or one of the growing market's mobile devices for accessing the Internet," explained Kyle Kerr of FYO Canadian Domain Names.

Domain name values have exploded over the past few years, and Canada's own domain name has seen growth as well. Buying and selling domain names have become not only a legitimate business, it is making people really rich.

This market was absent an appraisal service by Canadians for Canadians. The only appraisal service prior to this would be the myriad of overseas companies offering this type of service. With the introduction of FYO Canadian Domain Names' appraisal service, such a service now exists.

"We were getting many requests from Canadian owners of .ca domain names inquiring about the true value of their domain name and/or website. Without deep working knowledge of the industry it can be hard to ascertain the value of your dot ca domain," continued Kerr.

"This service is geared towards domain name portfolio holders to those who purchased a domain name but never got around to using it. When it comes time to sell your domain names, don't under-sell. Be sure to get a proper market appraisal first. We have been very successful in our own domain name buying and selling, so you can be sure to get the most accurate and thorough appraisal on your domain names and websites."

  1. Now thats what I'm talking about! Its exactly whats required for .ca's. People will take them more seriouly possibly once a documented appraisal is made allowing people to see the value of them in comparison to other geo tld's. I am fed up for the hunt for the big white .mobi as that ext is a joke unless you have the top generics.

    So .ca gets my backing from here on on! Look at how hot is right now and gaining strength, so as part of the commonwealth, I say old boy it's our turn to shine (profit or add what you like here)in our own domain shangri-la.

    I am officially persuing more .ca's starting now! My extensive research shows that the .ca ext has ALOT of gems still waiting to be regged. This apprasial service is certainly great news.

  2. You're right, within Canada .ca and .com are the two best extensions to have. I don't think a lot of Canadians have caught on to how valuable good .ca domains can be. Not sure why this is, because everyone sees them all over the place. The market has some catching up to do.


Thank you!
