Yesterday I did a post on Remembering the forum CanadianDots.ca:
That reminded me of DNC.ca, which was also one of my favourite Canadian Domaining forums to visit. It was run by [notify]theinvestor[/notify] and I posted there under the name MapleOne.
Interesting story back then the owner of DNC.ca was actually bidding on the domain DN.ca.
I waited a few months until the negotiations had concluded and it was obvious the domain was still for sale to come in and bid on it. I negotiated for quite a while and purchased dn.ca from member [notify]Cathedral[/notify]
So dn.ca has a long storied past and could very easily have been used on the previous generation of this forum.
The most active years for dnc.ca according to the wayback link above were 2012 & 2013 and then traffic started to decline and ultimately it went offline in 2019.
I remember being quite sad the forum went down and after a couple of years I discussed it with some of my domaining friends and I was encouraged to bring another version online.
I did a survey of possible domains and dn.ca (for obvious reasons) got unanimous approval whereas I was more in favour of ProDoamains.ca because it had some resemblance to NamePros where the discussions on .ca were held.
So today we remember dnc.ca which also ran under DNCanada.ca
