    Canadian Web Hosting, Eh? - Why Web Host in Canada?

    (Page 2 of 4 )

    With an increasing number of businesses turning to Canada in order to find the best hosting company to host their applications, it's time to find out why. The first reason has to do with the domain name. As you know, most search engines have the capability to narrow searches within their preferences, and "Canadian sites only" is one of the most popular options, especially in Canada. So if you plan on doing all or some of your business in Canada, you will need a Canadian IP address or a .ca domain name for the search engine to return your site. Of course, this is probably the least attractive reason for anyone doing business in the U.S.

    After hearing about Canada's oil supplies, it shouldn't come as a surprise to find out that Canada has a surplus in electricity. In fact, they sell a lot of their surplus electrical power to the U.S. It might make you jealous to know that Canada doesn't go through the power shortages (roaming blackouts are quite the pain for me personally) or high energy costs that are seen in many U.S. states. Most Canadian web hosting is run on cheap, clean hydroelectric power.

    All Internet backbones in Canada are completely integrated and linked with U.S. backbones. Hosting companies in cities like Toronto, Vancouver, and Montreal can actually provide better connectivity for many nearby U.S. cities than many U.S.-based companies. Canada has long been a leader in the communications industry.

    For the with privacy concerns, you will be relieved to know that Canadian web hosting can mean more effective legal safeguarding of private information. Because Canada has passed privacy laws similar to those in the European Union, your data will not be subject to U.S. authorities or laws, like the Patriot Act, if it is stored on Canadian servers. The Canadian laws make sure hosting companies are held accountable if private customer data isn't properly protected.

    The last reason I'm going to give has to do with Canada's friendly reputation. Obviously it's not good to stereotype, but in general, Canadian affability is world- renowned. And with this reputation, you can expect the best customer service with any hosting company.
