Just posting some things I've thought about in the past but had no one to discuss with, but has anyone ever had a .ca domain stolen? I'd think it would be easier to recover a stolen .ca domain than a stolen .com or other extension, since the registry is completely within Canada and everything is easier to trace and follow up on. If you get a .com stolen, it could end up with some registrar in China and then you'd be dealing with international law and having to get a lot more people involved. Maybe another good selling point for .ca's I'd never really considered.
 
Good question, but I've never heard of one stolen in the traditional sense (someone hacking into your account and transferring the domain away).
 
It's a great point, come to think of it I have also never heard of a stolen .ca

HeHe.... maybe nobody wants them :lol:
 
I guess it’s possible for someone to steal a .ca if someone has your account password but I believe with a bit of work, CIRA could get it back for you.

.com’s happen more than we probably know. I think sex.com would have to be the biggest one. Not stolen anymore of course.

Not as liquid, not as valuable, not as easy to fence, no borders to hide behind, a single authority with CIRA, etc...

Lots of reasons.

People tend to want to steal things of value
Lolololo
Sorry
 
Cira will do nothing for you short of a court order. They'll tell you it's between you and the registrar. We've had it with other issues.
