Why Host with a 100% Canadian Hosting Company?

Your IP Address Matters

If you're a Canadian trying to reach the domestic market, it is important that the IP address of your website points to a web server located in Canada.

Google, Bing, and other search engines will only return sites with a Canadian IP address or .ca domain name when someone selects "Canadian Sites Only" when searching for products or services.

Here's another reason why you should use a Canadian hosting company - what Google says about your IP address and its impact on your website's ranking in search engines: "Yes, we do use your server's IP address to try to determine if your site is relative to a particular country. If you're really relevant to France, it might help to have a French IP [address]. It's not a stopper — it's not that you can't rank in France without a French IP [address], but it can help."

Strict Privacy Laws

Canada's privacy laws are in compliance with those in the European Union; Canadian and European companies who host in the U.S. may be breaking the law if private information is not adequately protected or is made subject to American laws like the Patriot Act.

Hosting in Canada therefore means private information is more effectively and reliably legally safeguarded than in the United States, and potentially beyond the reach of those authorities.
