Canadian Web Hosting: Your Questions, Our Answers.
  • expand What is Web Hosting?

    A web hosting account is a secure space on powerful computers (called servers) located in special buildings (datacenters) that provide consistently fast Internet connections, redundant power supply, and physical access security. Today, web hosting has evolved from being considered “just some space on a server” to being a comprehensive platform on which you can build, publish, and market your website, in addition to providing powerful collaboration tools such as email, calendars, and file sharing.

    Our web hosting plans are designed for Canadian small businesses and entrepreneurs wishing to build, grow, and publish their website quickly and efficiently without breaking the bank, and include great tools such as Site Builders, WordPress, email, visitor statistics, and more. They are easy enough to use even if you have no technical experience, while being powerful and versatile enough to meet the needs of advanced software developers and power users.
  • expand How is Web Hosting different from a Domain Name?

    A domain name is an Internet address used to locate your website or web application. If available, a domain name can be registered for up to 10 years at time, and be renewed indefinitely. However, a domain name registration on its own doesn’t actually do anything other than prevent someone else from registering it.

    To display website content and access email, a domain name must connect to a web hosting account, a Cloud Server, or a Dedicated Server. Web Hosting Canada makes it easy for you to reserve your domain name while ordering a web hosting account. We include a free domain name registration with certain hosting packages. You can also associate multiple domain names with the same website, or multiple domains to separate websites on the same hosting account at no extra cost.
  • expand Which Web Hosting plan is right for me?

    Get the best web hosting plan for your type of website and usage.

    The STARTER web hosting plan is good for small, informational websites that require limited processing power.

    PRO web hosting delivers better performance by doubling the available resources (RAM, CPU, Disk throughput) to your account, enabling faster page loads and more simultaneous traffic to your web site. It also includes free, automatic SSL certificates for your domains all their subdomains, It’s a great choice for WordPress, Joomla or Drupal sites expecting to receive several hundreds of visitors per day. It also includes Premium features such as Anycast DNS.

    The ENTERPRISE web hosting plan delivers even better performance (twice that of the PRO plan), and includes a dedicated IP and free SSL certificate for improved security and trust. It’s the right choice for demanding sites such as online shops, discussion forums, and advanced WordPress sites.

    You can easily upgrade from a hosting plan to another from your Client Area at any time.
  • expand Why choose Web Hosting Canada for Web Hosting?

    In addition to the standard features you’ll get from most web hosting providers, Web Hosting Canada offers even more:
    • Improved performance up to 3x faster than the competition with highly optimized web servers, tweaked by experts with tens of thousands of hours of cumulated server management experience.
    • The best tools, including multiple Site Builders, 1-click installation for WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, and popular e-commerce tools such as PrestaShop and Magento.
    • Canadian datacenters, improving load times for Canadian clients, improving search results in local searches with Canadian IPs, and benefiting from Canadian privacy laws. We operate out of both East coast and West coast datacenters for added proximity to your clients.
    • 24/7 support in both French and English. Our team is seriously dedicated to your project’s online success.
    • For power users and developers, Web Hosting Canada delivers too: multiple versions of PHP, Python, and Ruby, MySQL databases, SSH access, and burstable resources for hungry applications.
    • Canada’s most powerful DNS technology, featuring D-ZONE Anycast DNS. It’s included for free with PRO & Enterprise hosting plans!
    • Greater value. Web Hosting Canada provides value through a wide range of products. Start small with one of our shared web hosting solutions, scale up to Canadian cloud servers once traffic picks up, and move on to dedicated servers when needed — all under the same roof, with consistent help by our team of qualified WHC experts.
  • expand Do I need to be an expert to use Web Hosting?

    No, that’s why we’re here! We’ve worked hard to create simple tools that non-technical users can use to build beautiful websites, easily collaborate with co-workers, and help you succeed online.

    For example, the Presence Builder is an easy and intuitive tool that can be used to build a unique, stunning website in just a matter of minutes.

    Need more flexibility? With over 300 applications available in 1-click installation, setting up that WordPress site is a breeze.

    Stuck at any point along the way? Our friendly support staff is available to lend a helping hand 24/7 by phone, email, or live chat.
  • expand What can I expect once I activate my new hosting account?

    Once your account is verified and activated, you’ll be given a secure access to your Client Area, where you’ll be able to manage your website and its related services.

    To create a new website, either launch the Presence Builder or install one of 300+ available Apps, such as WordPress.

    Uploading your existing website is easy through Secure FTP, or with the File Manager. If you are transferring from another provider, contact our 24/7 support team and we will do it for you.

    You can create new email addresses in your control panel, and read/send emails online using Webmail or with your favorite email application such as Outlook or iPhone Mail.

    For help, you can read through our hundreds of available Knowledge Base articles, tutorials, or reach out to our friendly 24/7 support team.
  • expand Can I upgrade my hosting plan at any time?

    Absolutely! Simply log in to your Client Area to upgrade your plan at any time. You’ll only pay the difference between the two plans.

    You can also get in touch with our support team to request upgrades to our Cloud Servers or Dedicated Servers product line if your website has growing needs.
  • expand How can I transfer my website from another provider?

    Transferring your website to Web Hosting Canada normally involves two steps: transferring your domain registration, and transferring your web site content. Our team can help perform both operations for you, free of charge. Simply drop us a line to request a Professional Site Transfer after you’ve activated your hosting account.

    If you’d like to find out more about transfers or if you’d prefer to complete the transfer yourself, consult our Knowledgebase Article about How to transfer your website to Web Hosting Canada.

The CPU (Central Processing Unit) is the “brain” of the server and performs all the computations needed to display dynamic web pages. The value shown is a percentage of one CPU’s core’s compute cycles that is allocated to your account (a server will have several cores at its disposal).

The higher this number, the faster your website or application will be able to load, especially if you’re using databases or complex PHP scripts. This is often the case with busier WordPress and e-commerce websites.
50% 100% 200%
Memory (RAM) is fast and volatile storage that is used to store short-term data that is actively and frequently used by your website, such as database queries results, and the contents of scripts coded in PHP or other prgramming languages before they are output.

Memory allocated is displayed in MegaBytes (MB). A higher memory allocation will generally translate into faster load time for your website, better response-time under heavier load, more simultaneous users and generally smoother end-user experience.
Memory (RAM)
512MB 1024MB 2048MB
I/O (input/output) speed determines how fast you can read and write into the persistent storage arrays, and is shown in Megabytes per second (MB/s). I/O can affect the time it takes to load your website, to perform administrative tasks such as update databases or running complex cron jobs, to upload or download large files to/from your website. The higher the number, the faster your site will be.
I/O Speed
2MB/s 4MB/s 8MB/s
The number of entry processes allowed will determine how many simultaneous visitors your site will be able to handle. The higher the number, the more visitors you’ll be able to greet at any given time. If you reach your limit, your website may temporarily display an error message until a slot frees up.
Entry processes
25 50 100
An inode is a file or folder on your account. The higher your inode limit, the more files you can store on your account.

Certain types of accounts can generate a large quantity of inodes if they generate multiple temporary files for caching purposes and aren’t carefully monitored (sometimes the case with certain content management systems like Joomla), or if they use email with misconfigured auto-responders or high volume of daily use.
Maximum Inodes

Anti-Malware Detection
An IP address is a set of numbers like that identifies your web site’s server. On a shared hosting package, one IP address is often shared by hundreds of web sites without any problems. With a dedicated IP address, you reserve an address that uniquely identifies only your site. This improves the compatibility of your SSL certificates across multiple devices, and can increase trust in your website. A dedicated IP address is available for free upon request with the Enterprise plan. It is otherwise available as an optional upgrade at a discounted price of C$29.95 per year.
Dedicated IP
With a dedicated SSL certificate, data transferred between your site and your visitors are encrypted and digitally signed, ensuring that they originate from their expected source without having being modified. When browsing a secure site, visitors will see a security lock in their browser, confirming that the site is safe. SSL certificates are required for sites that process credit cards (or similar sensitive information) online. Thanks to WHC’s AutoSSL technology, a free SSL certificate will automatically be installed and renewed on all your websites so long as your domains point to our servers
Basic SSL Certificate
With Brute Force protection, your account will automatically get locked if invalid login attempts are tried more than a certain number of times, effectively preventing malicious users from discovering your password by attempting different combinations.

By default, we start you off with complex & secure passwords that will be very difficult (if not nearly impossible!) to guess.
