Why Hosting Your Website in Canada is a Great Idea

Local Propeller has everything you need to ensure that your website is up and running 24/7 and fully supported by a team of experts. Plus, because our web servers are based in Canada we offer many benefits that other web hosting companies, like GoDaddy, simply can’t offer.

  1. Local Propeller’s web servers are located in Toronto, Ontario and your website will have a Canadian IP address.
  2. Canadian companies, or international companies selling their products in Canada, benefit the most from a .ca domain name hosted within Canada. This combination of hosting and domain name will push your website higher in search engine rankings when a potential customer uses or another search engine aimed at a Canadian audience.
  3. Canada is a world leader in telecommunications and internet services with a state-of-the-art communication infrastructure that is equivalent to anything available in the USA and Europe.
  4. Our web servers are close to the major population centres in Canada so your Canadian customers will have a faster connection to your website.
  5. Our web servers are also physically closer to the major population centres in the United States than a web server based in the southern states like Texas or New Mexico.
  6. Our servers are monitored 24/7 by experts whose only task is making sure that your website is up and running.
  7. Canada has strict privacy laws that are in line with European regulations, meaning websites hosted in Canada are typically immune from US laws like the Patriot Act.
  8. Canada’s copyright, censorship and adult content laws are more lenient than those in the United States. This means your website and it’s content is safer from legal action. Canada anti-piracy laws are also very strict so your data is still safe from theft or mis-use by other parties.
  9. Canada’s dollar is typically worth less than the US dollar, meaning you can save money by hosting your website in Canada.
  10. Canadians have a well deserved reputation for being friendly, and our tech support is no exception! If you have problems with your website or web hosting Local Propeller’s friendly support staff will be eager to assist you solve the problem (not just tell you what the problem is).
  11. We offer a 30 day, no worries, no questions asked money back guarantee, so if you’re not completely satisfied we will refund your money in full.
