I have a site that does well on Google (the mother of all Googles that is). It gets some hits off the local Googles too but I want to develope sites on those local googles that are more localized. I am located in Japan and was able to get a .com.au domain because I have a "mate" down there. Can anyone tell me how I can get a .ca and .uk domain registered even though I am not living there? I plan to host in those countires as well.
My two major beefs with them is that they don't take PayPal and they don't offer as many DNS controls as namecheap. Pretty good otherwise. Intergration with Privacy.ca is also nice. Even though I am a Canadian citizen, I'm pretty sure you can avoid that -- I didn't use any of my real information because I really don't want people to find out my address just by doing a whois search.
Except that when you register a .ca domain there are more steps involved that just the registration. You also have to comply with the .ca rules, you are sent to the .ca registrar site where you have to specify your status as a Canadian.
I am not sure what would happen if you lied on the form, or if they check.
