Web hosting services are a form of Internet hosting service that provides individuals, organizations and users with online systems for storing information, images, video or any content that is accessible by using the web. Clients are provided space on a server that is owned by such web hosting servics. They may also provide internet connectivity to their clients.
Different types of web hosting services include free web based hosting services, shared web based hosting, dedicated web hosting services, and collocation web hosting services.
Canadian web hosting services are proliferating day by day. Reason for this is that there are more people on the Internet per capita in Canada than there are in United States of America. Another advantage of a Canadian web hosting service is that Canadian dollar has a lower value compared to US dollar. This provides a cheaper option to clients for acquiring space on a particular server.
Other factors that make Canadian web hosting cheap and hassle free compared to US web hosting services are low electricity costs. There are limited chances of disruptions due to quality infrastructure provided. Cost of downloading and support concerns are considerably reduced if the site is located in Canada itself. Download speed may also be fast if the website is located in the country where web hosting server exists.
Canadian hosting companies offer almost every type of web-hosting package. It could range from a basic package intended for a simple homepage, to the most complicated e-commerce packages, Virtual Private Server (VPS), and Dedicated Server options.
The United States (particularly Texas) has many of the world’s biggest hosting companies. Yet many Canadian, American and European companies are now turning towards Canadian web hosting companies to host their business applications because of a world class network, proximity to US, surplus electrical power, payments in Canadian dollars and strict privacy laws.
