Starting January 13 Go Daddy started supporting .ca Internationalized Domain Names with French characters. This means French-Canadian individuals and businesses can now register the English and French versions of their domain name.
The .ca registration and management process is very specific, so to simplify the information, Go Daddy has broken it down into several categories listed below. Check it out:
One Registrant: The registrant of a particular .ca domain name will have the exclusive right to register all of the variants of that domain name. We call this process “bundling.” For example, only the registrant of grace.ca can register grâce.ca, and vise-versa.
Single Account: If a registrant wants to move their domains into another account with us and initiates an account change, they will be prompted to move all of their .ca variants. If they don’t accept the request to move all variants, the account change cannot be submitted.
Same Registrar and Contact Information: .ca domain names and their IDN variants must be registered in the same account, with the same registrar, and must have the same registrant contact information.
Bundle Transfers: If a registrant wants to transfer their .ca domain name, they must submit a transfer request for all other variants of that name. If they don’t submit a request for the variants within 5 days, the transfer will fail for all .ca domains.
Identical Prices: We’re keeping costs simple. All .ca domain names, IDN or not, will have the same registration and renewal fees.
