Best hosting service in Canada

Service used: Shared
I used other hosting services before switching to iWeb, which became Funio. I have been their customer for 7 years and I am quite satisfied. I believe Funio is one of the best in North America

Usually, when I start with a web host it's for one or two months and then I'm off to switch to another. Ever since I found Funio, I haven't wanted to switch. Their reliability is awesome, their pricing is fine for normal web hosti...Read More

Very quick & knowledgable staff

Service used: Shared
Twice in the past year I've had a problem (one was fixing a DNS record, and last week a domain transfer corrected for a renewal) and both times they took the time to fix it themselves. My client has been with them for the past ~8 years and I'd recommend them to anyone.

They were good when it was owned by iweb. Now, they are horrible at everything. Stay away!

Same here - one problem after the other for a client of ours. Slow support in top of it. I can only imagine that most - or at least some - of the positive reviews here are fake as I heard quite a few horror stories from others.

Canada Based Hosting since 1999

Funio has been in business since 1999 serving customers throughout North America and beyond.  They are based in Canada and have a great reputation or good quality shared hosting and VPS solutions.  They currently have more than 20,000 customers spread out over 100 countries.  They work hard to keep their services up to date with the latest trends and demands of their customers.  If you are starting a small site or something larger, they can help you every step of the way.

In addition to web hosting solutions, you can also use their domain name registration services to get the site you need. If you need SSL certificates, spam protection, email marketing or other web services, they have that as well.  Overall this is a very nice hosting solution to consider.

Uptime & Reliability

Very Stable Hosting Solutions

This company keeps their servers up and running smoothly at all times.  They use only high quality hardware and it is housed in a very nice data center that always has multiple power sources and data connections out to the Internet.  The tech support also does a good job at keeping things properly monitored to ensure there are no unexpected problems.  While I didn’t notice any type of uptime guarantee, you can expect to have a very nice hosting experience with this company.

Nice Features for the Price

As you browse through the hosting options that are available you will see that they have a lot to consider.  They break up the different types of hosting into several categories, each of which has multiple packages.  This is designed to make it easier for users to choose the right package for their needs.  For example, one category is WordPress shared hosting.  Within that package there are four choices.  All of them come with solid state drives, which is great since it will help improve the stability and speed of your site.

They then have VPS solutions for WordPress other types of sites.  VPS’s also have solid state drives, which is somewhat unusual but certainly a good thing.  The VPS solutions can have up to 64 gigs of RAM.  This is quite a bit more than many other providers offer.  To put it simply, the features available from this company are quite good and will meet the needs of most users from entry level to reasonably large sites.

Easy to Reach Tech Support

Tech support with this company is very easy to get in touch with.  They respond to phone calls, emails, tickets and even faxes!  They only offer managed hosting solutions, which means the tech support team can help you with just about any type of issue you run into.  They also have a very nice knowledge base to provide you with a lot of information about the hosting they provide.

Pricing

Compare
9

Very Nice Pricing Levels

The hosting prices start at just $.99 per month and for that you get a very nice shared hosting package (though it is limited to just one site).  If you pay your plan annually you will get a free domain name, which is a nice little perk.  As you move up to higher hosting levels the prices go up too, but they never go above what you would expect when comparing the features to the price.  The VPS solutions go as high as $58.49 per month, but that is for a very nice solution.  On average, you can expect to pay slightly less than you would at most other hosting companies for similar services.

Very Friendly Customer Support & More

While this company markets itself as ‘high quality on a budget’ they do put a lot of effort into ensuring the users have a good overall experience.  The website is very easy to browse through to find exactly what you need.  Each package shows just what you’re getting, and how much you will pay.  All of this helps to ensure you won’t run into any problems or confusing when choosing whether or not to sign up for one of their packages.  Once you have signed up you can use their one-click installation scripts to get your sties up and running, and their tech support team is there to manage the servers for you so you don’t have to worry about a thing.

Summary

Great Canadian Hosting

This is one of the better hosting companies in Canada today. They have been in business for quite some time and really do a great job at ensuring their customers have everything they need to serve visitors to their sites.  If you need shared hosting or a VPS, this is an excellent company to consider.

Pros:

  • Great Pricing
  • Generous Features

Cons:

  • No Dedicated Servers
