    Completely off topic but we're looking for new web hosting for this site.

    Can anyone recommend a company based on experience? Preferably, we'd like a Canadian host company.

    Might be a bit more work for you but have you considered Linode? We use it at work and I have the $5 a month plan for messing around. I know it's not Canadian but you get a lot more control.

    I have used Powweb since 1996 and I am happy with them. They are a US company, but simple and reliable.

    I've used islandhosting since 2009 (formerly island net)
    https://islandhosting.com/services/

    They let me run cron jobs and batch graphics, thus I can produce my wind map.
    Also ssh & scp.

    Here's some options

    Not Canadian, but a good choice if you are a Mac user is MacHighway. They host our kayaking club website, NSSKA.
