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.

"Never before have I worked with a company where I truly felt as though I could bring my authentic self to work each and everyday. Companies preach it, but very few actually put it into practice. At Tucows, we truly embody our core value of We > Me, we can only do our best work if we foster an environment where everyone feels hurd (pun intended), valued, and is given opportunities to thrive. In my 6 months with the company, everyone I’ve had the pleasure of working with has been extremely collaborative and has consistently shown up with passion, empathy, and drive in all that they do. We are always striving to push the boundaries, iterate on feedback, and deliver the best solutions, both internally and externally with our customers - we’re not the type to settle for the status quo. Tucows has been a wonderful place to kickstart my career as a UX Researcher, and I look forward to what’s to come."
