Internet Domain Company Launches ATM Service

RE> Unusual in an industry promoting online payment by credit card, TCNS introduces an easy payment option for domain names.

TORONTO, Feb. 10 /CNW/ - TransCanada Network Services announces the launch of a new domain name distribution channel.

TCNS customers can now register domains online and pay for them at their Bank, the Bank Machine as well as through the Bank's online and telephone banking bill payment service.

TransCanada Network Services worked in cooperation with all major banks across Canada for the past few months to make sure all systems work flawlessly for today's launch.

"We're thrilled to be leading the way with the acceptance of Telephone, Online and ATM bill payments as a way to pay for a domain. It should make owning domains as convenient as paying your phone bill," said Gigi Baxter, Operations Manager at TransCanada Network Services.

Like a license plate, a domain needs to be registered and renewed year to year.

Dot-ca domain names only became widely available to Canadians as of December 2000 and less than 1/3 of the Canadian registered 1.3 million domains end in .ca (CIRA, December 2002). There is still a good selection of .ca domain names to choose from and as the popularity of .ca domains continues to grow, TransCanada Network Services looks for innovative ways to make it easy for Canadians to own them.

TransCanada Network Services is 100% privately held company, registering domains since 1996 to thousands of Canadians. is a node in the TransCanada Network and is certified by the Canadian Internet Registration Authority to sell .ca domain names.
