Company Philosophy

Our goal is to provide our customers with world class registration and hosting services for a reasonable price. Most of our site is fully automated, allowing us to offer some of the lowest prices in the industry.

Dynadot is a debt-free, privately held company. Our solid financial infrastructure provides stability in an industry where companies appear and disappear frequently. We plan to operate and grow this business for a long time, and we do not intend to go public or become acquired by a faceless corporation.

local operation

Dynadot has an office in your backyard! Since our founding in San Mateo, California in 2002, our team has grown each year. So, in 2011, we decided to open our first international office in Beijing, China. Since then, we have opened another office in China and one in Toronto, Canada. So rest assured, when you register a .CA with us, you're buying from Canadians just like you!

Protect Your Brand with a .CA Domain

Even if you already have an established business website on another domain extension, if your business is in Canada or you're planning to expand into the Canadian market, we also recommend registering a .CA domain to protect your brand. Since .CA websites are prefered in Canada, it's a good idea to secure your domain name before someone else registers it. This ensures that you have control over your brand and messaging. If you're not ready to set up a separate website or don't want to, you can simply forward your .CA domain name to your main website with our free domain forwarding service.
