Disclosure: As is the case with many other industry/topic specific magazines, websites and trade publications, we do receive compensation from some of the companies whose products we review within and outside of the web hosting industry, including, but not limited to, paid advertising placements, referral fees, contextual advertising links and sponsorship packages.

Just as its name would have you believe, Canadian Web Hosting is 100% Canadian owned and operated. Their head offices are in Vancouver, British Columbia, as is one of Canadian Web Hosting's data centres. The other is in Toronto, Ontario. All customer support is also based in Canada, promising a true Canadian experience for all who sign on for it.

CanadianWebHosting.com offers three plans, aimed to meet the needs of everyone, from the individual launching a personal site to a medium-to-large business, with higher demands in terms of traffic and disk space. Start with the Basic plan, if you like: Canadian Web Hosting offers no-hassle plan upgrades, giving you the freedom to grow.

In business since 1998, Canadian Web Hosting has long since established itself as a leader in the Canadian market. With no set up fees, competitive pricing, no contract and a 60-day money back guarantee, giving this all-Canadian web host a try carries few risks!

Price Value

Canadian Web Hosting offers value pricing with a minimum commitment. A Basic plan with a two-year commitment term costs just $3.95 a month. For unlimited disk space and bandwidth, the Value plan comes in at $7.95/month (for a 5-year term; a 1-year commitment will cost $9.95/month).

Overall, Canadian Web Hosting offers a fairly comprehensive package of features for most needs - though e-commerce capabilities and shopping carts do not seem to be on the list. Canadian Web Hosting offers a rare 60-day money back guarantee, pledging no hassles and a full refund to unsatisfied customers.

Reliability

Canadian Web Hosting has two data centres, one in Vancouver and one in Toronto. Both boast environment control, UPS power backup, power generators, 24/7 security with electronic key access and around the clock monitoring. Any technical issues are spotted quickly and dealt with accordingly.

Canadian Web Hosting offers a 99.9% guarantee on its server and network uptime. If any customer's site is up less than 99.9% of the time in a given month, that month's fee will be refunded.

As an added security and reliability bonus, a spam and virus scanner is a standard feature of all CanadianWebHosting packages.

Control Panel

All Canadian Web Hosting standard hosting plans are built using the latest cPanel Control Panel software with CentOS. cPanel allows users to monitor the amount of bandwidth and space used at any time. cPanel also allows customers to manage email accounts, databases and additional features, many with a single click. cPanel is, hands down, the industry leading control panel.

Customer Support

CanadianWebHosting's office doors are never locked. They offer 24/7/365 customer service via toll-free telephone. For advanced customer service, Canadian Web Hosting suggests submitting an email ticket or accessing all-Canadian support via live chat.

Canadian Web Hosting also offer self-service support, thought an extensive FAQ section, downloadable documents, a searchable knowledgebase, tutorial and relatively active user forums. If you have a question, at any time of day, Canadian Web Hosting will be on the line with an answer.
