Why should I host my website in Canada?

What does unlimited hosting mean exactly?

The term "Unlimited" is commonly used by the hosting industry to denote that your website(s) will be provided as much storage or bandwidth as they need. Unlike many hosting shared providers, Webnames partition our servers equally. When someone signs up for a hosting plan, they get allocated their own section of a server dedicated entirely to them, and them only. If a hosting customer maximizes their allocated space, they can simply request additional storage from Webnames' Customer Support team as per our As Much As You Need (AMAYN) policy. Read more about What Unlimited Hosting Means and How It Works and refer to our Hosting Terms and Conditions for complete details.
