    www.easyhosting.com registers .ca names - you need to be a citizen or a registered business owner (Or so I was told)

    its called a domain.
    a top level domain is blahblah.ca
    the ones that are given free by countries arent just in canada.
    the US , canada, and most countries do it.

    so why pay? well you get what you pay for.

    free ones usually are fourth, fifth, or even sixth level.

    lol, go figure. imagine owning a business with a site at:
    http://kitcars.toronto.on.ca

    maybe it isnt too bad but a .com or top level .ca is around $15
    a year.

    here is the US one

    Top level domains are like .com .net .org .mil ... you get the idea. They are registered to the root servers, 13 of them.

    a.gtld-servers.net is one of the nameservers that controls all the zones from the .com "generic top level domain (gtld)"

    a.root-servers.net is one of the 13 nameservers that contols all of the "official" top level domains.

    I use easydns.ca its the easiest way to have a domain point back to your rogers/home computer.

    Watch out that you dont register a domain name then have to pay big bucks to actually point it to something.

    With easydns.ca you register the domain name then give it an ip address (the routing part) to point back to your pc.

    www.kitcars.ca and www.kitcaronline.ca just point back to my home account where I have a pc running a web server.

    Simple .. not strictly legal according to Rogers agreement terms but hey .. its not a big web server ..
