As a result of the coronavirus crisis we have (temporarily) moved all our operations online and needed to beef up our website...展开
. We were paying a fortune with our last host and site speeds were terrible and costing us business. We switched to CanSpace and within a day they had us fully migrated. We are actually paying LESS than before, and our site is performing way better. The migration was a pretty complicated one as we weren't even coming from a cPanel-based host, but they did it all for free and everything is working 100%.
I've been a client of HostPapa for almost 10 years. This is just for my personal use. It has hosted my website which includes...展开
many of the popular content management systems and photo galleries. In all those years I can only remember one time when they were "down". A few times I've had to contact them for help and their online chat is very responsive and helpful. Each time it was a human - me - error.
I also and the techie for 2 other sites on HostPapa for a musician friend. It shares some of their music.
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.
I was totally duped into going with these guys being that they're Canadian. I signed up paid more money that I did for my sig...展开
ht on webs only to find out there are no tools to help you Market your website you have to pay for everything listing on search engines optimization tools stats all those things only come when you pay extra. I ended up going back to webs of which by the way you certainly can get a. CA website and those things already come with it. Nice and simple pay once get everything you want. Every time I asked for help on this one the answer was the same everything I asked for cost extra what a waste of my time building a site either way make your own decisions but be prepared to pay extra again and again and again
