    Curious so opened chat.

    Tech advised:
    I can turn automatic renewals off. one moment
    Done
    You can toggle them back on now in the domain manager if you like
    ==
    And presto, now there's a button to toggle automated renewals on or off

    Yep, but until you ask, it's hidden and you're on perma-auto-renew.

    Sure, but that brings it own set of problems, as I believe they try to renew 45 days before the due date, and if there is no payment method, they can delete all DNS/nameserver info and just use it to advertise Rebel. You also no longer have account access to transfer the domain and instead need to contact Rebel for a code each time.

    This way, you have full access to the site until the renewal date, and can even recover domains manually.

    I use Dynadot and pay $9.50 for .ca... but I get a bulk pricing discount... would be a little bit more for the new user.

    We don't leave credit cards anywhere online.

    The purpose of automated renewal is so that the registrar has permission to take advance payment. When it is ON and there is no payment method in your account you would / should receive a notification that the payment failed.

    If you turn auto renewal OFF, the registrar no longer has your permission to take payment, but would / should still send you reminders of the looming renewal date.

    Finally: I do not know of any registrar who would delete or modify DNS ahead of expiration.

    Obviously, but we're talking about the default mechanism at Rebel, whereby they are on "permanent auto-renew" and the only way to stop a renewal (or a renewal payment failure with no CC/PP) is to delete the domain before Rebel attempts to renew.(30-45 days before renewal date).

    i.e. by default there is no way to turn auto renewal OFF

    And when the payment defaults, you will have no more control over the domain, so any changes or transfers will need to be made over the phone (Rebel constantly relocked a domain I was trying to transfer over and over), and not manually through your account.

    I am not sure if they do it anymore (I think some people called the CIRA on them) but they used to put you on "park" towards the end of the term if you owned them money (i.e. you removed your payment method) on the auto-renew.

    Seriously, I went through this 2 years ago, which is why I posted my helpful hint.

    You can also read some of this stuff I dug up online:

    If we are going to support a candidate, do we know what (if any) changes we want CIRA to make?

    Great question! Since not really up to date with the inner workings of Cira...only thing that I can suggest (going by what been posted on this thread) is more promotion to the "end user" about the advantages of (dot)ca. Kind of support Canadian "products:..

    That's on my list as well.
    Here's my list:
    1. Remove Canadian presence requirements. The current requirements likely violate NAFTA. We'll have to wait to see if .ca is affected by the current negotiations.
    2. Reform the TBR process. Allow names to drop when they drop instead of all of us going after the same name on the same day.
    3. Promote, promote, promote. I have never seen them on TV. The news channels have business shows I have never seen them on, Bloomberg TV-never seen them. I subscribe to several marketing newsletters, CIRA has no presence there.

    Canada is 35 million english speaking middle class wage earners with direct access to the biggest market in the world. We could and SHOULD be the "startup" extension-see #1.

    Discuss.

    Kinda neutral about #1 (NAFTA or not)..can see the advantage of being "exclusive" and yet the downfall of it especially the world wide competition and using (dot)ca for spam!

    Can you explain the advantage of being exclusive to me? I don't get it.

    I think one advantage of keeping .ca exclusive to those with a Canadian presence is that it helps in the respect of the name. If you look at Spamhaus abuse statistics .ca is among the very best. I think the Canadian anti-spam legislation is partly to credit for this. If the .ca can be registered by those who are not subject to the legislation, suddenly a bunch of spam will be coming from .ca addresses, I think, and that will make the entire .ca galaxy less respected, accepted and valued. So I strongly oppose removing the Canadian connection requirements.

    I think .CA should continue to be semi-restrictive, but like some other ccTLDs, opening it up to NA (or even worldwide) firms doing business in Canada (but without the physical location requirement) would be a good step forward for online companies, consultants, foreign development, investments, etc who right now need to hire an intermediary to get a .CA website. Canadian requirements for individuals would remain as is.

    The goal here is to stir up more business and attention to the .CA extension, but without going the route of .CO, .IO, .TV, etc. and opening it wide to anyone.

    Well said! I believe in "human nature" without the Canadian presence, the opportunists (spammer/black hatters/etc) would "cheapen" the extension!

    That is the only main reason that I am neutral !
    But think, there is money to be made by "leasing" of (dot)ca's

    I am still "forecasting/hoping" a big boom in the "cannabis" niche when the legalization/decriminalization takes effect.

    c o t t a g i n g . ca

    A favorite summer pastime for hundreds of thousands of Canadians every year. For me, nothing beats a cabin in the woods on a pristine lake.

    Now, this is cottaging in relation to "going to the cottage", not the Google result of a "gay slang term, originating from the United Kingdom, referring to anonymous sex between men in a public lavatory" which hey, whatever tickles your noodle, interpret it how you will.

    Might explain why it was available, though..
