January 25, 2008 (HOSTSEARCH.COM) Toronto-based web hosting company Netfirms, Inc. (http://www.netfirms.ca) recommends Canadians secure dot-ca domain names in 2008, it was reported recently. The CIRA certified dot-ca (.ca) domain name registrar suggests a dot-ca domain name is particularly important for small businesses targeting Canadian consumers as alongside a Canadian focused website it establishes a trusted brand that attracts Canadian customers.
"Until a few years ago, dot-ca domain names were typically more expensive than dot-com, explained Netfirms, Inc.s Product Manager, Mr. Jason Matheson. We started offering CIRA certified dot-ca domains for as low as $9.95 CAD per year - comparable to the industry standard price for a dot-com."
Netfirms offers a range of benefits for those purchasing a dot-ca domain including an editable webpage and an email account (including spam filtering) associated with the domain, alongside full DNS management through the Netfirms control panel and 24/7 access to technical support.
Founded in 1998, Netfirms provides hosting solutions and innovative clustered server technology and currently caters for over 1.2 million websites worldwide.
The Toronto Board of Trade has honored Netfirms for excellence, leadership and innovation.
