Why Choose a Canadian Hosting Provider?
Website hosting is an incredibly complex topic, especially for business owners who are signing up with a hosting company for the first time. While websites can be hosted anywhere in the world, it is a good idea to take the time to consider why you should choose a Canadian hosting provider. At Danory Technology Partners, Canadian hosting is a company value of ours to ensure better care for our customers. We know how beneficial it is for Canadian companies to host their websites locally, and we advocate for it for the following reasons:
1. Offers SEO Benefits
If you are looking to improve the visibility of your company for customers who are searching online within Canada, choosing to work with a Canadian hosting provider can help. Having your website stored in Canada will provide you with a Canadian IP address, which will help Google determine the proximity of your business to the people searching for the services that you offer online. This means that having a Canadian IP address will help make your website appear more relevant within Canadian-based search results.
2. Faster Loading Times
Since the distance between a computer and a server can affect the loading time of a website, having the website hosted by a Canadian provider will offer decreased loading times for your Canadian customers. Websites with faster loading times increase the odds of users staying on the website for longer periods of time, which, in turn, improves the chances of converting more users into actual customers.
3. Allows for Canadian Domains
Registering a website or domain with a Canadian hosting provider will give you the opportunity to have a .ca domain, which can be a powerful tool for promoting your business to Canadian consumers. In some cases, having a .ca domain can also help improve the rankings of your website in Canadian-based searches on Google.
4. Compliant with Canadian Laws
Since data is subject to the laws of the country that it is collected in and Canada is very strict when it comes to managing the personal information and data collected from consumers, it is important to choose a hosting provider who will adhere to Canadian privacy laws. A Canadian hosting provider will ensure that all of your business’ online data is being properly protected, while also restricting access to any personal information being stored.
5. Provides a Cost-Effective Solution
When it comes to choosing a hosting company, many business owners will often opt for the cheapest option in order to save money. While US-based providers used to offer cheaper service packages than Canadian companies, the amount of datacentre space in Canada has increased significantly over the years, allowing Canadian hosting companies to offer competitive prices. It is also important to keep in mind that Canadian hosting companies will charge you in Canadian dollars, while other countries will most likely charge you in their own currency.
