Why .cpa?

.cpa is a new, verified, top-level domain exclusively for the accounting profession

  • A top-level domain (TLD) is the part of a website URL that comes after the “dot.” 
  • The internet’s governing body, ICANN, has awarded the .cpa TLD to the AICPA.
  • Unlike most TLDs, only accounting firms can register for a .cpa domain.

So why does your firm need a .cpa domain? 

Your firm is at risk

Accounting firms — like yours — are enticing targets for phishing and other online attacks because they handle large amounts of sensitive client data. Here’s how phishing works:

  1. Fraudsters register a domain — often for as little as $20 — that closely matches your website’s.
  2. They then use this domain to create fake websites and email addresses that look like yours.
  3. Finally, they contact your clients, asking them to log in to “your” website and submit sensitive personal information.
