GETTING STARTED

What type of hosting are you looking for?

Take a look at the information below to figure out the best solution for you.

Canadian Content

An alarming number of Canadian hosting companies and ISPs have outsourced or sold their web hosting clients to US and abroad interests… without notifying their clients! Another trend in the industry is to outsource mail services, and/or additional product offerings, without disclosure. As a Canadian business that collects the personal information of Canadian citizens, we are bound and abide by Federal and Provincial Privacy Acts.

Other countries contradict Canadian Laws, such as the American Patriot Act preventing Canadians from knowing how their client or member data is being accessed abroad. CanHost takes pride on internally hosting all services from our facilities.

 

Canadian Facilities

CanHost’s facilities located in Kelowna, British Columbia, were designed and constructed from the ground-up to provide secure high-availability electronic data storage services. CanHost utilizes isolated transformers, fire guard construction, and cheap, green BC hydro electric power – boasting some of the best utility rates in North America. The complex, including company offices, is protected by UPS systems, generators, and advanced fire detection and suppression systems. It is also secured using video surveillance and security staffing with a secure loading bay.

Kelowna has been identified as an ideal location for electronic data storage and Web Hosting in Canada. It is surrounded by mountains, 1000 ft. above sea level, in a geologically stable area. Kelowna has little to no risk of natural disasters such as earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, or major storm systems.

 

Virtual Private Servers

Virtual Private Server hosting is the best solution for total control and configuration, with fully dedicated server performance at a fraction of the cost of a dedicated server.

Shared Hosting

Shared hosting is the most cost-effective way to host your own website and email accounts. Managing a dedicated server can be costly and complicated – with shared hosting, you get a fully functional Control panel (Plesk or cPanel) with virtually no limitations, and lots of extra features.

Dedicated Hosting

With CanHost Dedicated Server packages, you or your company have a single server dedicated to its needs. With a dedicated server, you enjoy more speed, greater flexibility, full-control, ability to handle site traffic and most importantly – room to grow.

Managed Hosting

With CanHost Dedicated Server packages, you or your company have a single computer dedicated to its needs. With a dedicated server, you enjoy more speed, greater flexibility, full-control, the ability to handle site traffic, and, most importantly, room to grow.

Email Hosting

CanHost will host just your e-mail on a dedicated e-mail server so your company can enjoy the marketing and branding advantages that a company email provides.

Backup Services

Hosted Backups provided from our privately owned and maintained Data Facilities within Canada.

Reseller Hosting

Reseller Web Hosting is the easiest and most cost-effective way to start a web hosting business, or to add value to an existing business with web hosting. Many web design companies use Reseller Web Hosting to add value to their business by bundling hosting with site creation.
