Why should you choose a Canadian web host? According to CIRA, 64% of Canadians prefer making online purchases from a Canadian retailer. Canadian web hosting keeps your files, emails, and data all within Canada offering exceptional website speeds for local shoppers accessing your website. Paired with a .CA domain name, Canadian web hosting makes it apparent to potential customers that your business is located in Canada.
Your Data Stays In Canada
Your data, including your website files, databases, and emails all remain within Canada. Keeping your data in Canada keeps things simple when it comes to complying with PIPEDA (The Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act). According to priv.gc.ca — PIPEDA applies to private-sector organizations across Canada that collect, use or disclose personal information in the course of a commercial activity. Having your data stored across borders is allowed, however as a Canadian business you would still remain liable for any problems that occur.

Canadians Are 4 Times More Likely To Choose .CA
According to CIRA, Canadian shoppers are 4 times more likely to choose a website if it has a .CA domain name. As a .CA certified registrar, BlackSun allows you to register a .CA domain name and gain the upper hand as a Canadian retailer. This also helps with SEO, because Google assumes that your website is in Canada if you have a .CA top-level domain and your website’s IP address is located in Canada. For a Canadian business, .CA and Canadian web hosting are the perfect pair! If you want a Canadian web host, look no further – check out BlackSun’s shared hosting plans today.
