Global Provider of Accommodation Services Selects Canada Web Hosting

Direct Hotels Finds Excellent Customer Support and Super Fast Network at Canada Web Hosting

TORONTO -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 24, 2006 -- Canada Web Hosting, a proven partner for managed hosting solutions, announced today that Direct Hotels, a global provider of accommodation services and products, has selected Canada Web Hosting to host their web services at their Toronto data center.

Direct Hotel's rigorous selection process included finding a managed hosting provider that was reliable, provided disaster recovery solutions, had client growth in mind, and had excellent support. Canadian companies were preferred because Canada has enacted strict privacy laws recognized as compliant with privacy laws in the European Union. Hosting in Canada means private information is more effectively and consistently legally safeguarded for Direct Hotel's global customer base.

"When people use services that are accessed via the Internet, they expect 7x24x365 availability," stated Cliff Thompson, President of Direct Hotels. Thompson continued, "We selected Canada Web Hosting because they are Canada based and, most importantly, their reputation for secure, reliable service and superior customer service model."

"Canada Web Hosting has and will continue to invest in infrastructure, processes and especially people to ensure the highest possible level of service for our customers," states Brian Shepard, President of Canada Web Hosting.
