To apply for a .cpa domain, you must either be: (i) a licensed CPA firm with a CPA firm license issued by a state board of accountancy and/or (ii) when .cpa is opened up to individuals (in January), an individual with a CPA license.
In most jurisdictions, a firm must have a CPA firm license to hold out to the public as a CPA firm, and an individual must be a licensed CPA to hold out to the public as a CPA. Our eligibility criteria were established to address these “holding out” rules.
If you are unsure as to whether you are a licensed CPA firm or have questions related to becoming a licensed CPA firm, please refer to your respective state board of accountancy.
A standard .cpa domain costs $225 per year. Premium domains i.e., two or three characters in length, city name, industry vertical, etc., are available and priced accordingly.
