Luckily, it’s never been easier to find a good managed WordPress hosting company in Canada. Currently, WordPress is powering almost a third of all websites in the world. In fact, most web hosts provide default installation for it.
In the process of searching for a hosting provider, questions like “who is the best” and “why use WordPress hosting to begin with” might surface.
For the first question, you’ve come to the right place. This review covers the top 5 hosting companies.
For the second, WordPress is customizable, user-friendly, intuitive, and comes with a free version. There’s no reason not to turn to this option.
SiteGround powers almost 2 million websites worldwide. It has a startup plan for $5.99, GrowBig for $9.99, and GoGeek for $14.99. All three prices are introductory and in USD.
The most basic plan comes with a single website, 10,000 visits per month, and 10GB storage space. The middle one features 20GB storage space, an unlimited number of sites, and up to 25,000 visitors per month. The most advanced offers 30GB storage space and 100,000 visitors per month.
The basic plan will meet your hosting needs at the beginning. However, you will need to upgrade eventually.
SiteGround also offers 24/7 customer support, site migration, automatic WordPress installation, daily backups, a free SSL certificate, a developer’s toolkit for advanced users, and more.
2. A2 Hosting
A2 Hosting is one of the most dynamically growing hosting companies. They have three plans as well: Lite, Swift, and Turbo.
Lite features one website, unlimited transfer, unlimited storage space, free SSL, site transfer, SSD, and a money-back guarantee.
Apart from having twice the resources of Lite, Swift is faster and comes with unlimited storage and websites. The other features are the same as Lite.
Turbo has all the features of Swift and A2 Hosting site accelerator. Swift and Turbo place emphasis on speed, a fact reflected in their plan names. A2 also offers 99.9% uptime commitment. If you want to test them, choose Lite. It’s pretty fast and will give you the time to decide whether you need more power and features or you’re fine as is.
The third choice in this review is unique in being perhaps the only hosting service running entirely on renewable energy, hence the “green” in their name.
They have three hosting packages: Ecosite Lite, Ecosite Pro, and Ecosite Premium. Lite is the starter plan, priced at just $2.95. It comes with unlimited bandwidth, MySQL, and SSD disk space. The Pro version is more suitable for a growing business or website and costs $5.95. It has the same features as the Lite, but its performance is twice as powerful.
Finally, Ecosite Premium is best for busy online shops and sites. Its introductory price is $11.95. For this amount, you get all the features of Lite and four times the performance power. All prices are in USD.
GreenGeeks also offers a free SSL certificate and site migration, a one-click installer for WordPress, a 30-day money-back guarantee, daily backup, and auto-updates to ensure your installation stays safe and secure.
4. Web Hosting Canada
Web Hosting Canada is the go-to option if you’re looking for a 100% Canadian provider (prices in CAD, head office and data center location, customer service, and more). Their cheapest plan is WordPress Go ($3.49) and features one website, 25,000 monthly visitors, and SSD disk space of 10GB.
The second plan is WordPress Pro. It costs $4.99 per month and comes with one website, 100,000 monthly visitors, and 25GB of space.
Finally, their Beast plan for $9.99 per month features one website, half a million visitors, and 50GB of space.
The final choice is also in Canada. At $3.95 a month, their Starter plan is best for basic blogs and websites. It supports two websites. You can expect access to a free domain, 100 emails, unmetered bandwidth, and 100GB of SSD storage space, as well as basic WordPress features.
If that doesn’t sound sufficient, you could opt for their next plan, WordPress Business ($5.95 per month). It features an unlimited number of websites, emails, SSD storage space, and advanced WordPress features.
Finally, their Pro plan is best for people looking for advanced performance and enhanced security and speed.
