    Cons

    • Support quality is somewhat inconsistent
    • Unexplained, short-lived issues with site loading time

    Some web host companies will sign up with CrocWeb in Canada because they have Canadian clients who want their websites hosted on a Canadian server even when they are living somewhere else. Some web host start out with a shared hosting plan for one website.

    Overall, no experience with them has ever been bad. I am happy with a reseller account although I can’t deny the fact that there are areas where CrocWeb could use a lot of improvement.

    Summary of Review

    CrocWeb is a really solid web host. They are extremely close to being the perfect Canadian host and I have never found any complaints about them. And I have search hard to try to find some. They are consistent in speed and support could use some improvement. Still CrocWeb is definitely one of the top Canadian host I have ever used.

    Their monthly cost is $5.95 each month.

    CrocWeb Review Ratings

    Speed – it is erratic so I gave is a 4.5 for Reliability – no problems so I gave it a 5

    Support – there support tech are always on duty – 5

    Price – 5

    Overall summary ratings 4.5

    My Observation

    Crocweb Hosting has a good website. My Canadian client likes the fact that his site loads in less than half a second and when he is happy – I certainly am happy. This client site was previously hosted by another Canadian server and it used to load in more or less 3 seconds. Now, 3 seconds might not seem too long for some, but think about this – every second is critical when it comes to businesses online. Believe it or not, a few additional seconds in loading time can in some cases spell the difference between securing and losing a potential customer. This means that having a 480msw load time is a huge plus for this site and moving it to CrocWeb was obviously the right decision to make.

    Erratic on Speed

    But there are occasionally several times when website would just load very slowly for me and my client. This random slowness seldom occurs so it is not something I am overly concerned about. I wish I knew why because this has been going on for some time now. I did my service and spoke to my contact telling him that I wish we could find out why this has been going on for some time now. I spoke with CrocWeb but I never got any useful information from them and this erratic behavior bothers me – I seem to be the only one. That is why speed only rated a 4.5.
