Finland Blog Hosting

When it comes to hosting a blog aimed towards a Finnish reader base or market; I cannot really recommend any reliable, easy to use company with servers in Finland. The market lacks growth and is relatively small; with some potential money wasting opportunities, most people turn towards European hosting to get your money’s worth (know any that can beat my claim? — leave a comment).

Connectivity to Finland is great from many European centrally linked cities. I’ve been using A2 Hosting with servers in Amsterdam; it’s a good combination of speed optimization with ridiculously easy WordPress blog install & management.

Note that some the free Finnish blogging services are known to have closed; even some of the very old ones.. sending huge junks of text straight to bit heaven. So if you are serious about this — I would considering using a hosting company.
