I am looking for a good Canadian, FreeBSD-friendly server vendor. I have searched internationally (read: USA) and came across Iron Systems
, which had some props from the members of WebHostingTalk
Iron Systems has a server that fits our needs, and is fairly cheap, however the shipping, brokerage fees, and potential duty fees would raise the price significantly (by at least $100).
So, now I'm looking for vendors in Canada, preferably in Vancouver or Victoria BC. Also, if anybody has experience with cross border shopping for servers, I would appreciate any anecdotes on the brokerage/duty fees, specifically does "Assembled in USA" count towards the whole "Free Trade" thing?
