CIRA bring domain name suggestion technology to .ca with DomainsBot

The Canadian Internet Registration Authority (CIRA) is pleased to partner with DomainsBot to bring domain name suggestion technology to Canadians seeking to register a .CA website.

Domain name suggestion technology is known in the industry as “name spinning”. It is a tool that helps people looking for a website address by suggesting alternative variations of a word or term that they enter. It can help them sort through similar sounding options and more importantly, provide alternatives when a domain name is already taken.

“With over two million .CA domain names already registered, common nouns, common phrases, and personal names may not be available to the interested Registrant.” said Dave Chiswell, Vice President of Product Development at CIRA, “by enabling DomainsBot’s industry-leading name spinning technology we’re helping Canadians quickly and easily find a good name for their business, non-profit, or personal websites. This benefits the person registering the website because a good .CA name has been shown time and again, to be a critical factor in online success.”
