I currently have Bluehost and want to get away from them before adding anymore client sites. I am tired of having downtime and 30 minute waits to chat with someone.
Anyway, I have looked into CrocWeb and it looks great. It seems like the reviews are great too. I'm based in the US and since they are based in Canada I want to know if I should be concerned at all. I talked to their Sales Dept and they said I shouldn't have any issues but I want to know what other people think or have experienced.
Canada is close to USA i believe so i don't think you will have much issues with Canada to USA. So if their plans and support seems legit to you then i think it is Good to get their IP to check the Ping and tracerout and compare it with few US Providers. That can help you to decide which one to choose.

CrocWeb is a good provider. And Canada should not be a issue for US.
You may ask for a test IP and do ping.

Latency between the US and Canada is pretty much a non-issue.

You pretty much won't notice a difference if your site is hosted in us or canada. They are very close to each other.
As for the host why not give them a try for sure they will be better than blue host. Search croc webs name up here on the forums see what type of discussions show up under their name then make your choice from there.
One thing you might want to take into account is would your clients be happy with the move to a different company? Not saying that it's bad, like others said, latency should not be much of an issue, you should maybe speak to a few of your clients and see what they think.
