Canadian Web Hosting, Eh? - What's the Latest?
(Page 3 of 4 )
According to tophosts.com, one of the top providers of regional web hosting information, the company Canada Web Hosting was named the number one Canadian service provider, and number one managed host, for November 2007. And this wasn't the first time this year they were given this honor. In order to select the top hosting providers each month, tophosts analyzes each company based on these criteria: customer care, extent of service and product offerings, innovative marketing approaches, and technology adoption.
Canada Web Hosting's CEO, Brian Shepard, had this to say about the honor bestowed upon his company:
We've been delivering the highest level of customer service with unparalleled support to each and every client since the beginning. These awards reaffirm that our focus on partnerships, great people, and operational excellence continues to be a winning combination.
Canada Web Hosting has operation centers in Toronto and Vancouver with its headquarters in Kelowna, B.C. It was named one of Profit Magazine's fastest growing companies in 2006 because of its comprehensive approach to managed hosting. Rounding out tophosts' top five Canadian web hosting companies are:
4. NetNation Communications
3. Peer1 (also named number one dedicated host)
2. iWeb Technologies (also named number one shared host)
But it's not all rankings. In November 2007, Canada gained its first carbon-free web host, Solar Energy Host. This company offers service that guarantees zero greenhouse gas emissions. Aaron Handford, the founder of the company, says, "I was really impressed with the idea of reducing the 'carbon footprint' of the Internet. By using solar power to host the sites I saw an opportunity to make a difference in a real way."
Instead of merely being carbon-neutral, where companies buy carbon credits to counterbalance green house gas emissions, Solar Energy Host uses a state-of-the-art solar powered professional web server, the only system of its type in the world. All servers and technologies are based in California (the San Fransisco area). Leave it to San Fransisco and Canada to lead the way in the fight against Internet global warming.
Obviously, this is just a smidgen of what's going on in the world of Canadian web hosting. For more news about individual web hosting companies, please visit ca.tophosts.com.
