Canada’s most popular hosting companies

Having been working in the Internet industry for more than 10 years, whether it was for logging in and editing websites or setting up customers with new hosting accounts, I can say I’ve definitely had to deal with my fair share of hosting companies.

All the best and biggest hosting companies available now are the ones you see first when you do a Google search for hosting companies. Most of them have packages that are rich in features such as unlimited bandwidth, unlimited disk space, more MySQL databases than you would ever possible use, and a free domain for the life of your account, and sometimes start for as low as $2.95/month.

Some of the most popular hosting companies out there now include:

Every now and then, I get requests from customers to recommend some Canadian hosting companies to them, and I’m happy to tell them that there are indeed Canadian hosting companies that are just as good as the American ones listed above. The two most popular I know of now are HostPapa and myhosting.

Myhosting is not as good a deal as HostPapa; however, unlike Hostpapa, they have a variety of different hosting plan options, including a VPS (Virtual Private Server) package that is one of the best deals you can possible get for a VPS.

Making the move to HostPapa or myhosting

The sign up process for either one is quite simple, with just a couple of forms to fill out, and you can pay using PayPal. Moving over your sites is then just a matter of downloading from your old Web host and uploading to your newly purchased HostPapa or myhosting account. If you have a database, it will take a bit longer because you’ll have to export your databases, create new databases through your new hosting control panel, and then import the info into the new database.
