ok i have searched and searched for a company that provides whois privacy for a .ca domain and only found domainsatcost.ca which i really dont want to use because many ppl i have talked to and read on these forums say they are crap is there any other company who has this service i have went to registerfly but some ppl tell me to buy ca domains at a canada domain register so im just lost i was gonna use netfirms.ca but they dont got it either. Also i was wondering what privacy.ca is do they cloak whois for u or whats the deal with them any help would be greatly appreciated
at domainsatcost it is free but they are not good i heard namespro charges 6.99 regiterfly is free with promo code im wondering if i register with registerfly will it be on the cira whois database or whatever **** this stuff is so confusing so much hassle and reading for a domain .com is so simple blahblahblah.com cc 5 bucks done god im canadian and starting to hate it lol
I dont think that Cira even allows it - otherwise the major registrars would be selling it.
As far as I know Cira is a huge stickler on the details of a domain name, and the whois output is modified from, and taken from the cira database.
I know Kelly at Cira checks domains and suspends them on a daily basis for invalid whois, bad legal data, company data, not being a canadian citizen, and all sorts of things.
Cira has sooo many hoops to go through that its not even worth trying - you are risking the possibility of a suspension directly from cira, not even from your registrar, but cira itself!
The only chance is from a place that delivers their own whois data and then displays the masked data, but its not going to display the masked whois on any other site that does not use that places whois for its output - rendering the service utterly useless.
