We really, really like the Open Internet

Everything we build, make and do is on the Internet but that’s not the only reason we think the Internet is important.

Our Story

Tucows started in 1993 by changing not just how people connected to the Internet but also who could get online.

We continue to push for change at every level of the Internet. Collectively, we manage tens of millions of domain names from .com to .xyz and work with tens of thousands of resellers (OpenSRS, Enom). We eliminate all the ugliness from buying and owning your domain and email (Hover).

We changed what people expect from mobile phone service (Ting Mobile). We’re changing the way entire cities connect to and think about the Internet as we build and light true fiber to the premises networks across North America (Ting Internet).

We’re a collection of scrappy, stable, little, big brands. Together, we’re an overnight success story 29 years in the making and we’re a long way from finished.

Our beliefs

The Internet

The Open Internet is an agent for positive change. It belongs to everyone and no one. We will help it to resist all attempts at ownership.


We see and celebrate innovation and creativity in every employee, customer and partner we work with. We try stuff and we capitalize.


We’re building things for people, not for machines. We choose simplicity over complexity every time.

We > Me

We are a mix of people working together to solve problems big and small. Together, we’re stronger, smarter and better. We beats me.

"Tucows has provided me with many opportunities to grow and challenge myself. Though we are a remote-first company, I was able to lead an in-person workshop @ Tucows HQ in Toronto last month.

It was refreshing to collaborate so closely with others again, and be able to see real smiles beyond the screen! Apart from meeting my colleagues IRL for the first time, I enjoyed seeing and hearing how creative and passionate everyone is about their work. Bonus: seeing many colourful sticky notes again after 2 years.

I’m a firm believer that great things happen when you are encouraged to think outside the box with a diverse group of people. You get this and more at Tucows, across the different businesses. Whatever challenges lay ahead, I am confident we have a great mix of talent, tools, and support systems, whether you choose to join the fun in person or remotely."
