A Proven Canadian Owned Domain Registrar 
TL;DR I have trusted my domain registrar hosting to Namespro for over half of their 20+ year existence. During this time, I have experienced seamless domain purchases from .ca to .com/.tv/.co/.me and a vast array of other properties along the way. I can only recall one or two instances in 10+ years where there were any DNS issues. That is impressive. Every other day it has been uneventful; and "uneventful" is a good thing in DNS management. I have compared other domain registrar options in the past, but at the end of the day I really don't see any real reason or benefit to change. With good service and a stable platform, they will remain my exclusive registrar of choice going forward.
I would highly recommend Namespro for any domain registrar needs, as I continue to use them exclusively for all my own domain hosting.VISIT NAMESPRO
Register+Transfer All Your Domains
Whether you only need .ca domains registered or all of your properties and extensions, Namespro can accommodate. Their basic search includes a collection of the most popular domains by default, however, you can select from all the new trending gTLDs as well, giving a selection of over 250 domain extensions. Personally, I find domain management easiest if I can register all my domains with a single proven entity. I have used Namespro for over 10 years exclusively for all domains. Whether you register or transfer a few domains or bulk domains all at once, you are in good hands here.
Features Including Easy WHOIS Privacy
Namespro includes many DNS management features with each registration. While all these features are of importance, the one that I value the highest is the WHOIS privacy option. A single one-time fee and all domains regardless of extension are protected with their WHOIS privacy going forward. This is great for the small entrepreneur whose registration information is personal private info versus a larger corporation that uses public business contact information to register. It also protects against a certain level of spam.
- Complete Zone File Management [FREE]
This is very necessary when using services such as platform web services (Webflow, Office365, Wix, Squarespace, etc) or when using email hosting services such as Google's Workspace to host your own-domain name email address(s). I use this included feature for my primary domain. It just works.
- Anycast Cloud-Based DNS Network [FREE]
Their DNS network is high performance, fault tolerant, and cloud based. This assists Namespro in mitigating large scale DDoS attacks when they occur and results in high uptime. I can personally attest to DNS only being disrupted in my experience once or twice in 10+ years.
- WHOIS Privacy For All Domains [ONE-TIME FEE UNDER $9]
This feature is 110% worth the money. Just do it. You will protect your registrant information from being listed in public WHOIS directories. Cut down on telemarketing, scams and domain hijacking. Of course CIRA rules automatically protect your WHOIS information for .ca domains, but if you have any other domain extensions, put this feature in your cart.
- Knowledgable Support [INCLUDED]
I have only needed their support services a hand full of times during my tenure. Most of these were my errors in entry. My experience has been very good with resolutions in all cases. Support is handled through a monitored ticket based system [no phone or live chat]. However, as I used to be involved in technical support in the past, I do find the ticket based support most efficient, documented and trackable. It has worked well. Their response time is generally 1.5 business hours or less..
- DNS Features [FREE]
MX records with individual priority values, TXT records, alias [CNAME] records, Domain Forwarding, Domain Parking, IP Forwarding, DNS Hosting, Specify Own Name Servers, etc. I personally use Domain Forwarding for many of my domains to direct them to my primary domain while I evaluate their design/use/future.
- Web Hosting [For a Fee]
I do not have any input relating to their website hosting options. I have transitioned away from Wordpress based design into platform hosted and managed products. It is SOOOO much nicer than Wordpress. My web host of choice is Webflow. See my review [here]
CIRA Certified Domain Registrar
This credential will be important if you are planning on registering a Canadian domain (.ca). The Canadian Internet Register Authority is a private member-based not-for-profit. Along with managing the .ca domain extension and working towards secure and accessible internet for all Canadians, they have over 200 projects funded through their grants. As a CIRA Certified Domain Registrar, Namespro upholds and is bound by their standards in relation to .ca registrations. They have been in business since 2003, which attests to their stability.
