  • .cpa makes all registrant information private, such as email addresses and other personal data, to help protect you from fraudsters.
  • .cpa domain, coupled with other proactive security measures, can make going after your firm — and your clients — more trouble than it’s worth.
  • A more secure domain also helps protect sensitive client information that resides on your firm’s online portal.
