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.

Innovation

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

Simplicity

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.

"When I joined the herd, I would have never imagined that my career development and aspirations would not be the only things cared for and prioritized, but my mental health, hobbies, and interests as well!

Tucows provides us with an LSA (lifestyle spending account). That extra financial support has allowed me to continue to pursue my passion for snowboarding, using it to pay for my entry fees into competitions, purchase a new snowboard set-up, as well as, other equipment.

I feel encouraged by my management team and peers to get out there and do the things I love."

If you love the Internet and you want to contribute rather than just consume, we should talk.
