Cloudways Canada Hosting
Price: $10 (USD)
Server location: U.S.
Cloudways is not your typical Canadian web hosting company, they are the lions in cloud hosting and the best part is that they are a pay-as-you-go service provider which is very ideal for small businesses with limited budgets. They have a variety of cloud hosting options, all of which you can customize.
The only biggest let down with Cloudways though is that they don’t provide emails on the domain (email@example.com) as most hosting providers do which is a requirement for most businesses. However, you can get it as an add-on at a cost of $1 per account per month.
Features included on their default plan are a free SSL certificate, free site transfer, and a variety of automated applications like WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, and Magento
Once you create an account with Cloudways, you can choose to get hosted on either of their top five hosting partners; Amazon (AWS), Vultr, Linode, DigitalOcean, or Google Cloud Platform. There are over 60 data centers that you can access as soon as Clouways have set you up.
It is worth mentioning that their representatives at customer support are very swift. You can reach them anytime via their Live chat, you can submit a ticket or fill an online inquiry form and they will get back to you asap. You can even request for a call through the forms. There’s also a knowledge base for you to sort out common issues.
Speed will vary depending on what partner you have chosen, applications installed, data center chosen among other factors. But the response time averages at 299ms. Uptime is 100%.
