My List of Best Canadian Web Hosting Providers
There aren’t as many Canadian web hosting companies as there are U.S.-based ones, but still you have plenty of good Canadian hosts to choose from.
I can’t tell you which specific service is the “best” since that’s a relative term and it largely depends on your specific technical needs, but I can tell you which companies provide a reliable service, prompt support, and reasonable prices.
