Add a Zip.ca bang

Hi,

I've been using your search engine for a couple days and I'm impressed. I'm a member of Zip.ca and it would be really helpful to have a bang to search their database. 

Zip.ca is a service like netflix, but for Canadians. 

Here is the search syntax on Zip.ca.

Thanks,
Olivier.

How about a generic !movies bang, one that searches in netflix, but if you're from canada, it searches zip.ca?

Though, that then confuses those who want netflix in Canada, or Tor users leaving a canandian node.. Hm...

I think it's better to have a separate bang for those websites. I believe DDG should add a lot of bangs and each users will remember only the bang they need.

Will add on next update. Are you thinking !zipca?

Thanks yegg13,

!zipca would be good, but the shortest the better, if !zip is available it would be really great. I tried zip.com, zip.net and zip.org and those domains are not used except for zip.com and there's no search engine on it. It seems there might not be fierce competition for !zip.
