Canadian Web Hosting

Written on August 14, 2015 at 5:52 pm

If your business or organization is based in Canada, and you have concerns about privacy of information, you’ll want to have your website hosted on Canadian soil.  This is a short list of the Canadian web hosts that I’ve worked with who are awesome at what they do.  

FullHost 

Based in Victoria, Fullhost has servers located in Vancouver and Toronto.  They offer shared hosting starting at $6 per month.  They also offer re-seller hosting and VPS.  Recently I was working on a site that needed to be moved to their server, and they assisted in the migration process by moving a huge amount of files over.  I was pretty happy that I didn’t have to do that myself.  Their response time was great, and their communications actually made sense.

WPCloud

If you’re site is going to be running WordPress, WPCloud might be the right match for you.  They offer managed WordPress hosting with Government level security, and plugin and WordPress updates.  Their prices are a bit higher, starting at $24 per month, but they’re certainly worth it.  Their support is excellent with fast response times and knowledgeable staff.
