Domain Registry of Canada scam

Some of our customers have reported receiving domain name renewal letters from a company named Domain Registry of Canada. The letter looks very official, with a maple leaf sign that suggests the letter originates from a canadian government agency.

This is a well known scam. This particular company has been operating for many years, as their service is not technically illegal: if you do pay the rather expensive renewal fee, they will actually transfer your domain name to them.

This company operates by using publicly available domain name registration information. That is how they can obtain your business name, mailing adress and domain expiration date.

If your domain name is registered with us, ask us how to protect you from such bad business practice. We can activate domain registration privacy, which will prevent such company from obtaining your personal information. This is a free service.

Similar scammy companies are probably also operating in the United States and other countries. If you are not sure about a document you receive by e-mail or regular mail, just contact us. We'll be pleased to assist you.

2008 : 10th year in business

The year 2008 marks for us an important milestone: our 10th year in business !

Everything began in two parent's basements. At that time, we were two teenagers sharing the same vision, working passionately on projects while studying. The Internet was off to a good start and we saw the enormous potential in it. Ten years after, many things have changed. For most of us, the Internet is now only a commodity; but there will always be room for innovation. 

Warm Thank you's to all our clients for all the past and future challenges !
