I was with a really cheap provider and let's just say I was getting what I was paying for. I switched to CanSpace about a mon...展开
th ago - I'm paying a few dollars more a month but now my site is flying. I never realized Wordpress was not supposed to be so slow. They also helped me install some caching plugins and set up CloudFlare, which has made a massive difference. They definitely know Wordpress and I would recommend them to anyone hosting a Wordpress site.
I had previously used a2hosting for wordpress and it worked great. However, recently I tried to move my node/express website ...展开
from heroku to a2 and it got as bad as it could get. First of all It says it costs $4.90/month, but when purchased it, I had to, for someone reason, pay $7, thought I initially thought it'll be alright, later I realized It was only for the 1st month, and after that I'll have to pay $13/ month. That's straight cheating, I would've sued them if it had happened in a larger scale. And I think it's currently true for php/wordpress hosting as well.
Furthermore, documentation for node is very very bad, I was initially very gald as someone was giving node hosting at reasonable price, but hey nothing is free.
Have been doing business using the same domains for more than 15 years and upon transferring them to CanSpace almost half of ...展开
my contact list says my emails are going to their spam filter - only Gmail accounts were reliably receiving messages from our domains. Of course CanSpace had no idea what I was talking about but this is the same host that repeatedly cited 'propagation time' and 'client email configuration' as the reason for almost 48 hours downtime with the transfer of these domains. In the end it turned out that their 'senior' tech discovered that our MX records had been incorrectly entered -- but no apologies offered for the lies told by their incompetent support staff. I should further add that this was only discovered after raising almost a dozen tickets because guess what? Despite claiming to offer 24/7 telephone support, their phone lines were mysteriously down when we called as they were "in the middle of moving offices" - of course. When I escalated the situation to owner Sunil and explained how messages from our domains were being blocked by half our address book since transferring them to Canspace, I was told to sign up for Amazon SES (Simple Email Service) - at an added cost - to better ensure that our messages were whitelisted. Fifteen years using the same domains with various hosts, no problem. Day one and every day after with Canspace, half the messages being sent from our domain are blocked. It was such a disruption to our business during our busiest time of year that we had to switch to using a Gmail account to ensure reliable email communication. The eventual solution? Transferring the domains the hell away from CanSpace to Namespro based in Vancouver. Total downtime? 3 hours but more importantly once again all of our emails are reaching our clients and the nightmare that is CanSpace is thankfully over. Deal with CanSpace at your own risk.
