On March 6, CIRA, the .CA registry operator, will change their data validation rules. Please keep in mind that on this date, CIRA will become more strict about owner data submitted when a domain is registered or modified.
Going forward, the following information MUST be provided for a registrant contact every time a .CA name is registered or updated:
- First Name
- Last Name
- Province/State (Mandatory when Canada or US is selected, otherwise optional)
- Postal Code (Mandatory when Canada or US is selected, otherwise optional)
Historically, the registry has not made all fields mandatory. Please ensure you are submitting complete and full information when a name is registered or updated; otherwise, your order will fail with an error message stating a required field has not been entered.
Please note this change does not have any impact on administrative or technical contacts.
