Q: How do I login to my new account?
A: Go to http://domains.coop/ca/login and enter your username and password.

Q: I haven’t received a password reset email. How do I login?
A: Email support@domains.coop and ask us to reset your password.

Q: Why can’t I find my domain in my new account? 
A: Please note that there is a 24- to 48-hour delay before your domain will be manageable again, depending on whether the transfer initiated during the workweek or over the weekend. If you need to make any urgent updates to your website, please send the details to support@domains.coop.

Q: I already renewed my domain. Why am I still getting a renewal reminder?
A: Because your website is still being hosted by our old provider, we are unable to turn off automated registrant emails. These include renewal reminders. If you aren’t sure whether you need to renew your domain, login to your new account. You can also confirm the actual expiry date of your domain by searching for it here: www.nic.coop/whois.
