Why Choose CanSpace?
There are many hosting providers out there offering similar web hosting and domain registration services, and it can be difficult telling the differences between them until you sign up and realize that many of the “free and unlimited” options are not really free, or do not stand up to scrutiny.
Here are some of the reasons why you should consider hosting your website with CanSpace:
1. Competitive Pricing: As a Canadian business, their pricing is in Canadian dollars so you know exactly what you are paying for hosting/domains without having to hope that the US dollar vs. CAD exchange rate is in your favour. On the domains front, I find that CanSpace offers the absolute best prices for .ca TLD’s.
2. Customer Service: I have a couple of domain names registered with them and have found their customer service to be timely and effective. Their customer service agents are located in Canada and available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year.
3. Realistic Service Options: If you have ever experienced web hosts who offer cheap “unlimited” hosting throttling your bandwidth and disk space, followed by lots of “503” errors, you are not alone. These offers are mostly to entice you to sign-up and once locked-in, your website’s loading speed and traffic suffers. CanSpace’s web hosting offerings are realistic and what you see is what you get.
4. Renewable Energy Powered: CanSpace powers all their servers using 100% green energy via hydro-electricity. If you brand yourself as an environment-friendly business, CanSpace complements your branding with a green carbon footprint.
5. Local SEO Boost: Savvy Canadian business owners know they can boost their local SEO and website ranking by taking advantage of local hosting in addition to the top-level .ca domain. With servers, datacentres, and IP addresses all “purely Canadian,” your website ranking can get the boost needed to succeed.
Hosting your Canadian business or personal website with CanSpace is not only beneficial to your business, ranking, and visitors/customers, it also means you are contributing to your local Canadian economy. When you think reasonable pricing, credibility, SEO, security, and environment-friendly hosting, CanSpace definitely delivers.
