What will you do with your domain name? This GoDaddy commercial gives you just a few ideas, but in reality the possibilities are limitless.

At GoDaddy, a domain name is the beginning of something awesome. Create a great looking website for your business, your non-profit, big event, family announcement…even a fan site for Fido! Open an online store to sell products and services online. Accept online payments, the works!

Start a blog to share your expertise and experience with the world.

Present a professional image to customers with domain-based email. Build and protect your brand by making sure no one else uses your name. You can even connect your domain name to your Linked In or Facebook page, so more people can get the information you want to share. The opportunities are endless! And you can do it all with your domain name and GoDaddy.

Plus, with new domain name extensions, you have even more names to choose from.

A domain name is a powerful thing. And with GoDaddy, our award-winning customer support team is ready to help anytime – day or night! What will you do with your domain name?



A personalized domain name or customized website makes the perfect gift

TORONTO, Ont., June 16, 2016 – What do you buy for the father who has everything? What gift can you give that will help new graduates launch their professional careers? GoDaddy Inc. (NYSE: GDDY), the world’s largest technology provider dedicated to small businesses, has made shopping for last-minute gifts for Canadian dads and new graduates quick, easy and affordable. With GoDaddy’s domain name registration, in just a few clicks, a personalized .CA domain name can be registered for people on your gift list.

“Domain names are not only the ultimate unique gift – they’re practical,” says Jill Schoolenberg, Vice President and General Manager, GoDaddy Canada. “A personalized domain name registered to you, whether you are a new graduate or a father, gives you the opportunity to create an online presence that is exclusive to you.”

Want to show them even more love? Build them a GoDaddy website using GoDaddy’s easy, do-it-yourself Website Builder, with hundreds of customizable designs. Simply select a layout, adjust the colours, replace the photos with your own (or choose from any of the 8,700 included stock photos) and then add your own text.

Some gift-giving ideas:

  • Register a .CA domain with dad’s name, so he’s got his claim on the Internet
  • Build dad a site that shows all the ways he’s the best
  • If dad is a small business owner, build him a site to showcase and help grow his business
  • Register a .CA domain for your new grads so they can build an online portfolio or presence as they embark on their new career
  • If you’re a dad, don’t wait for the kids: Reward yourself with your own domain name on Father’s Day!

If you’re not sure where to begin, consider this: GoDaddy Canada has registered more than 2 million domain names that include a person’s name, or a variation thereof. When it comes to personalized domains, Canadians register for domains featuring their full names the most often, followed by their first initial and last name. Web domain names featuring just a family last name, or just a person’s first name, follow in popularity.

From June 16 to June 30, show your Canadian spirit by getting your loved one a .CA domain for the special low price of only $8.99 for the first year. The offer is available at
