Los Angeles-based GreenGeeks announced today that they have officially entered the Canadian market and are now offering web hosting solutions north of the border. The announcement means yet another player in the attractive Canadian Web hosting market currently dominated by big players like WHC and HostPapa. It is a logical expansion of the American company which has been using Canadian technical personnel for a number of years already.
GreenGeeks has initially launched its Canadian services by offering shared hosting plans starting at just CAD $3.95 monthly. Before long customers will also have access to VPS, dedicated servers, and reseller services. New customers who purchase one of the annual shared hosting plans will receive a free domain registration with the .ca extension as part of their introductory deal.
The company’s Toronto data centre will provide Canadian customers better site access and optimized SEO services for Canadian-specific search engines. This is extremely important in light of the fact that many of GreenGeeks’ competitors are specifically developing Canada-centric services.
“We are excited about this new expansion in our services,” noted Green Geeks CEO Trey Gardner, “and we are proud of our accomplishments thus far and we remain vigilant to be one of the best web hosting providers on the internet and certainly the most eco-friendly web host anywhere in the market.”
According to Gardner, the expansion was fuelled mainly by customer requests for Canadian servers and a major web hosting company willing to accept Canadian dollars.
GreenGeeks is a global web hosting provider serving clients in more than 40 countries. As part of their mission, the company seeks to be the industry leader in providing environmentally friendly web hosting services. They maintain offices in Los Angeles, Chicago, and now Toronto, after having launched GreenGeeks Canada.
