    I messaged him just under a year ago, wanting to talk about buying the domain/site, he said it was his baby and would not think about selling it.

    I really liked that site, and thought it would be the go to for .ca domains.

    CanadaNames.ca
    CanadaDot.ca
    MapleDomains.ca
    CaDot.ca
    WebDots.ca
    ProDomains.ca
    Pure.ca
    DN.ca

    Which one do you like

    If its for the public then CanadaNames makes sense

    If its for Domainers then ProDomains makes sense

    Don't like any of those.

    I would try for something tastefully derivative of GD to help sell the website. Everyone knows GD and what they're about.

    It's a fine line though to avoid TM infringement.

    Huh??
    What does any of this have to do with godaddy?

    I'm talking about a canadian marketplace where domainers can list their .ca domains and maybe chat about them. So basically like a namepros but only for .ca

    The equivalent to what DNC was but with less moderation

    I misunderstood. I thought the marketplace was for bringing in domain outsiders.

    I like webdots for your purpose.

    I have NameIt.ca that I thought would make a good name for a .ca site.
    I just don’t have the tech savvy these days.....or time anymore

    Turned down $150 for BioMax.ca
    It was the same name as his startup.

    No regrets.

    My 1st choice would be Pure..
    (1) Short, sweet and positive..
    (2) Has plenty of options if not succe$$full as a domain marketplace

    2nd choice would be DN..same basic reason

    I like pure for any application, in this case it could mean a pure .ca marketplace. Period, no other extension just pure .ca

    DN would make the most sense though

    I personally like Dn.ca over pure in this instance for a domain site. Just because of the letters involved.

    Interesting timing. We're in a election cycle and LDC drops just as a new department was created to handle the debates...the Leaders' Debates Commission

    https://debates-debats.ca/en/

    LDC doesn't pass the bilingual test, but still interesting

    Interesting spin in today's TBR and a wide range of registrars got into the act.

    And you'll never guess who got W1.ca.

    I had a near-perfect TBR, I have a chance at the auction on some of the top ones I was following, and in terms of mid-liners I got my first choice and then lost out on 2 other stragglers that I didn't really want anyway.

    So I was a bit off, but not that bad considering:

    1. proforma.ca - MyID
    2. ldc.ca - Sibername
    3. buffalo.ca - MyID
    4. w1.ca - DynaDot

    Wondering why "13th" was dropped, can understand why it was picked up..quite the "popular keyword"
