VCN provides groups with a sub-domain (eg. vcn.bc.ca/yourgroup or yourgroup.vcn.bc.ca for WebGUI installations) as part of its standard package of services. However, some groups prefer to register their own domain name (eg. yourgroup.com).

If you want your own domain name, you’ll need to pay for registering it with a domain-name registration company.

Note: You must buy your domain name from a third party before we can host it.

Once you’ve bought your domain name, VCN can host it for non-profit groups for the .bc.ca.ca,.net.org and .com top-level domains. While there is no charge for VCN to host registered domain names, we do ask for donations that helps us to continue providing all of our services.

Community Groups wishing to have VCN host their domain name must register for a VCN non-profit group account. Also, included in this service are up to 10 POP3 email accounts.

Additionally, to have VCN host your domain name, go to our Domain Registration section below and fill out the necessary paperwork.
