Canon launches renewed global website using new ‘.canon’ top-level domain name

Canon, world leader in imaging solutions, announced that the company has gone live with a renewed global website employing a web address that departs from the traditional location-specific “” to the new “” proprietary domain name. The launch marks Canon’s first use of the “.canon” top-level domain¹ (TLD) since acquiring it in February 2015.

Canon’s global site web address employing the new “.canon” top-level domain 

Because “.canon” can only be used by Canon Group companies and services, visitors to sites that use the new TLD can easily confirm their authenticity and be assured that the information they contain is reliable. Additionally, by leveraging the simplicity of the TLD, which is easy to remember and easy to understand, Canon aims to enhance the Company’s global brand value.

Canon begins using new “.canon” top-level domain 

The TLD “.canon,” which makes use of Canon’s company name in the right-most side of the web address, is based on the new generic Top Level Domain (gTLD) Program.² With the launch today of the “” website,³ Canon is providing information to a global audience with a new online presence.

Canon renews global website

Canon conducts business activities around the world, providing information and services over the internet to not only the company’s customers, business partners and shareholders, but to all stakeholders in countries and regions across the globe. In addition to the English-language version of the “” website launched today, Canon will introduce other languages to the site in the future to share brand messages and other information globally.
