Canadian VPS comparison

1 minute read

This Canadian VPS comparison table features VPS hosting providers that are not only Canadian, they host the servers on Canadian soil. This is useful to anyone interested in moving their data to Canadian soil, but especially to public sector organizations like those in British Columbia that need to comply with 30.1 of FIPPA. If this is of professional interest, you might want to contact PrivaSecTech for a consultation in this area.

If you're moving your personal data to a virtual private server (VPS), it's good to remember that anyone who has physical access to a machine, can compromise it.

This means, if choosing one of these VPS providers, you're trusting every one of their staff who can access the VPS, as well as anyone who can physically access the server in the data centre. Don't hesitate to ask the provider how many of their staff could access the data, what their policy is in working with law enforcement, and how they would know if their servers were compromised.

That being said, I often get asked for Canadian solutions, and I prefer them myself. This is a list I've started to compile of cost effective VPS solutions, that offer an entry level VPS for $5/month or less.

If you know of any others that are competitive in price, or offer superior privacy or security features, please comment below.
