Yer right, forever is a long time
How about just free for as long as the registrant is alive
That would free domains up for use by others on an ongoing basis

Personally I think someone that offers a special on the renewal rate might hook domainers for a bit.

The new registrations are fine and a number of registrars do it, although WHC seems to be the most aggressive on the .ca side, but even a bit of a break on a renewal rate would help.

That said, you did mention you had bulk deals.

So what is the threshold if we bulk transfer in domains, how many do we need to move in and what would the transfer fee and the renewal fee be if we meet that threshold?

Terrible Experience Using Web Hosting Canada. AWFULL!!!!
1- I purchased a domain this morning using the promo code. No Problem!
2- **30 mins later, I try to purchase a second domain with the promo code. Cannot use it, even though the offer says you may register 5.
3- Contact chat support, tells me to give him the name , and he will register it at promo price. I dint want to do that. Offers me to pay full price and they will reimburse the difference. (Terrible business)
4- I call support. Quality of the call is awful. Terrible buzzing sound in the background. He tells me he can register the domain at promo price (he seemed helpful), he sends me an invoice for the domain and I pay for it.
5- **1 min later, Sir, there is a problem registering the domain, someone seems to have registered the domain.
6-I never told anyone about registering this domain other than the two Web Hosting Canada employees and the domain been available for the past two weeks.

I dont even know what to do or say at this point. Good Joke WHC!

If anyone from Web Hosting Canada reads this, please contact me .

Nice man from the company called. He said he's never seen a coincidence like this in 9 years, but cant determine anything. Thank you Web Hosting Canada.

1. Great to see them reach out to you, customer service is not dead!!

2. Had that happen to me numerous times on Godaddy, domain in my shopping basket for days, I go to checkout the domain is gone.

Number one rule in domaining, if you want the domain and it is available hit buy before it's gone.

Oh my, there's a lot going on here. :( First of all, let me sincerely apologize for this horrible experience. :( I will pass this feedback along to our customer experience team so we can do better, and will also tell them about the phone buzzing.

Unfortunately, the .ca offers can only be redeemed in a single order (this is coded on our backend), so that's why you had issues ordering more domains after that initial use of the promo code. (These details are outlined on the Deals page.)

I'm sorry you lost out on the domain you wanted, but I would chalk it up to a bad timing coincidence. :(

Well since you ask.... You could always bring back that unlimited .CA transfer in for $2.99. ;)

Wow, I'm a bit surprised ChargeStation was available given how the EV market has been growing.
