It’s been a long time since CIRA stopped offering provincial level domains (October 2010 in fact) and even longer since they changed the rules to make it easier to get a .ca.

Previously, the BBS had mmn.toronto.on.ca, then slipped in an upgrade to mmn.on.ca but could never get that coveted mmn.ca (this domain is now totally blocked for an eternity now btw).

I was looking for the possibility of finding on.cc or on.cx, something similar to .ca but not totally far off. But you see, you can only really get what you can get now days due to squatters.

on.gy popped up in an expired domains list and I took my shot, this is generally a better option than my usual haphazard searching for things. So as a little homage to our long ended ability to snap a .on.ca domain I recreated mmn.toronto.on.gy.

Granted I’ve registered mmn.on.ca for a very long time and it’s not going away anytime soon, but it’s pretty cool to be able to slap up an old name for prosperity.

Plus with the new curfew, what else am I actually going to be doing now days ?
