Good hosting companies not named GoDaddy, preferably Canadian

Hey all.

Anybody running a business website with a Canadian hosting company? I need one for my consulting firm, but I'd prefer a Canadian company, mostly due to privacy laws and Google search results.

Anybody using a Canadian company?

Thanks!

Doteasy is what I've been using. At the very beginning, they were horrible to deal with, as in trying to get a hold of them. They have since gotten better over the years. I've been happy with their service. Based out of Burnaby, I believe.

How is their uptime? I'm not going to be running anything bandwidth-intensive, but 99.9% uptime is a must.

Used Canadian Web Hosting when I was working with a web design company.

Doteasy I'm currently using. Not a lot of experience with their customer service so I can't comment. But I do know that they host for NCIX and quite a few local businesses.

Good to know, thanks. Do they bill in CAD or USD?

Not a Canadian company but I am fantastically happy with Rackspace. They are extremely easy to get ahold of when you need, good product base, nice online control panel, and reasonable prices. I have taken all my business from a combination of Bell, GoDaddy, and Rackspace and consolidated with Rackspace.

Not Canadian, but it was recommended to me in an RS thread: Stablehost.

I see their banner ad for 50% off, pop-up every so often. Their customer service is quick to respond if you have any questions. They have a very flexible control panel, too.

Well how Canadian do you want? I mean Peer1 is not quite Canadian.

Cloud solution makes privacy laws even messier. Unless your business deals with nefarious things or vices (gambling, porn etc). I won't worry too much about being in Canada or not.

If you have high volume you can go with in2net.. I think ncix runs off them or at least used to.

There's no real reason to have hosting in Canada, unless you are doing something that is illegal in other countries

Google/Bing search results prioritize a Canadian DNS for local results, or so I've heard.

The might prioritize on domain name, but I doubt they would on IP address. Because most sites use a CDN anyway, so the ip for the site itself is meaningless.

I checked them; they are ridiculously expensive.

I'll probably get a year at an American host and see how it goes.

HostGator is cheap and fast for basic needs (IE just a single site)
