We’re listed in this link. Scroll down. Fifth in the list.

The site isn’t very responsive on desktop, but they may be serving a dedicated mobile stylesheet.

and notice when on that page the logo icon is non clickable nor is the language toggle… amateurs!

Or SEO pros perhaps… Notice the link you gave, bici, was a .ca link. The ones I gave were .co.uk and Bert’s first one was a .com. So they are detecting where you are coming from and serving the page accordingly. Not having a clickable logo gives you more incentive (or trying to force you?) to click a Get Started, Learn More or such-like link instead. I haven’t done so but am sure they will present a very good competitive offer that might tempt you before you go.

Re: HostPapa

Ooh, Textpattern CMS Hosting in my country! Perhaps not for the USA, but even for the UK, that’s quite an unusual thing to see.

Again, SEO. They’re a Canadian hosting company acquiring smaller hosting companies, their data centers are in North America and mainland Europe. The list of countries and CMSes is purely a marketing/SEO tactic. It’s very common for web hosting orgs to do this.
