Pre- registrations are $60.00 CDN ($38.00 USD) per year. There is an additional $38.00 CDN ($24.00 USD) fee for all registrations processed by phone orders (toll free 1-877-722-5426.)
A note on pre-registration term: CIRA has adopted a policy to set the registration renewal date based on the original registration date of the .ca name. In general, names can be registered for periods of 1 to 10 years; however, existing names, during this pre-registration period, are to be charged for 1 year from November 1, 2000 to November 1, 2000, PLUS the number of months required to bring the registration from November 1, 2001 to the next anniversary of its original date.
For example, a .ca domain originally registered on December 5, 1999 will cost the sum of the term requested by the registrant (in this example one year, $60.00 CDN ), starting November 1, 2000. PLUS an amount calculated to bring the registration from November 1, 2001 to December 5, 2001. This amount would be calculated by multiplying the number of days difference between November 1, 2001 and December 2, 2001 (35 days) by $0.15; thus creating an additional charge of $5.25 CDN. Therefore, the total charge for the pre-registration of this domain name will be $65.25 CDN.
Note: Our daily rate is $0.15.
In no event can a pre-registration exceed 10 years, including the calculation to bring the registration forward to the renewal date.
If your pre-registration is not accepted by CIRA for any reason, you will be entitled up to a 90% refund.
