    Very true. I have been looking for a good dedicated host, and I am struggling to find even 1 good one in Canada. There are plenty of good ones in the US

    That's why I said I would love to launch a company, but the cost is high.

    agree, i think the problems are higher fixed costs and smaller scale for Canadian shared hosts
    may be not such an issue with dedicated server providers

    Maybe there needs to be some consolidation in the business to build the needed scale.

    They are the hidden giant in the industry. EIG has been buying hosting companies left and right. They bought Canadian host & registrar Netfirms awhile ago, and moved all of their customer's websites stateside. They gave up their CIRA license as a result.

    The problem is there are more datacentres in the US vs the handful that are here in Canada. More choices mean better prices.

    The few major Canadian commercial grade hosts do fine catering to big Canadian corporations and govt, and can charge whatever they want because those sites likely MUST be in Canada, for legal or other reasons.

    And as for the individual, more than likely he will choose with his pocketbook and go with who's cheaper, and 9 times out of 10, it will be a US-based host.

    I don't think any of the above mentioned hosting companies meet this criteria.
    The above is key - if you want the benefits of actually being with a Canadian host (ie SEO benefits, not being subjected to the DMCA, etc) - you need to choose a web hosting provider that actually has all their servers located in Canada.

    Doesn't iPage own at least 3 of those other hosting brands? If it were up to me, I'd go with iPage.
