New Backordering Platform from Web Hosting Canada Offers Opportunity to Get Valuable .CA Domains at Bargain Prices 

Canadians now have access to a new backordering platform from Web Hosting Canada (WHC) that gives them a chance to get valuable .CA domain names before they become available to the general public through CIRA's TBR (To Be Released) process. Every week potentially valuable domains are dropped, presenting an opportunity to acquire those assets for as low as $20 (the entry cost to place a backorder for a domain). If more than one person wants the same domain it goes into a 1-day auction (also managed through the WHC platform). 

WHC Founder and CEO Emil Falcon said, "With over 3 million active .CA domain registrations, finding an available Canadian domain name for your business is becoming more challenging. Before today, .CA domains did not have a single platform that could be used to confidently secure expiring domains. Our new Backordering platform aims to change that.” 

Frank Michlick, WHC’s Domains Product Manager, added, "What makes WHC’s backorder tool unique is that it “regularly wins more requested domains than other providers, with an average success rate above 70%. Our .CA backorder system is the most advanced platform of its kind, and thanks to continuous R&D investments and ongoing development of our domain management platform, we have plenty more improvements on the way.”

You can use WHC’s Backordering platform to bid on domains that drop every Wednesday at 2PM EST. The $20 entry bid includes the cost of a 1-year domain registration. Customers aren’t charged any fees unless they win the domain, so there’s no risk involved in participating in a drop. For more information about WHC’s backordering platform, visit: whc.ca/backorder
