There are an overwhelming number of web hosting providers in the market. While some of these providers offer great quality hosting and customer service, their pricing structure can be prohibitive for small businesses.
Most hosting providers offer great introductory prices at around $5 CAD/month ($60 CAD annually). This price is valid when you first sign up so it is wise to sign up for a long term plan such as 3 or 5 years depending on what the provider offers. However, after this initial contract is up, your price goes up to their normal rate, which is usually double this price or even more in some cases. I offer hosting services for a flat fee of $60/year without any contractual commitment. This way you know exactly how much your hosting costs now and will cost in the future.
