Cons

  • No virtual private server (VPS) offerings
  • Live tech support is limited to business hours
  • No scalable options

The Verdict

If you need Canadian hosting for a small to medium-sized business website, BlueFur probably has a plan that will work for you. They don’t yet offer VPS and plans are fairly rigid, so if you need flexibility or scaling on demand, BlueFur probably isn’t the right choice for your needs. However, if you’re looking to upgrade to dedicated hosting without signing a lengthy contract, you might find BlueFur’s dedicated server plans an attractive option.
