If you need features

Service used: Cloud
So we need features - real features, not bells and whistles with a useless UI. With Doteasy I can access a REAL cpanel - not some dumbed-down version. Cron jobs, One click back-ups of the entire server (including mail and database...Read More

Reliable, Friendly and Patient

This company has been a client with Doteasy since 2005 to current. One of the nuances about Doteasy is that they are based out of Canada. This works for us. They have great customer service hands down ONCE you understand that the ...Read More

Doteasy deteriorated, over years, from good to very bad

Service used: Shared
In my opinion, the present Doteasy is a group of small time manipulators. When I joined them, 16 years ago, they were emanating freshness and honesty and they had stayed that way for years. Then, several years ago, they attempted ...Read More

They make it almost impossible to transfer domains

It took me a few months of back and forth wrangling with doteasy customer service to finally get my domains transferred. If you don't sign up for their domain locking service, they need a special request to unlock a domain. But th...Read More

You helped me dodge a bullet. I was having trouble getting my bank to pay them, because the bank kept declining payment because they thought it was fraudulent activity. Anyway, I switched payment methods and for some reason Doteas...Read More

Do not buy into their lies

Asked about domains before I bought them and now they are trying to charge me an extra $15 per domain to transfer out when I have asked about all this well over a month ago and was put off apparently because all this is hidden in their terms.

Unbeatable prices

Service used: Shared
Feature-wise, yes, Doteasy doesn't offer all those bells and whistles the other companies have, but I am just a small business owner, so I don't need all those extra stuff. But pricing-wise, you just can't beat $5 for a domain nam...Read More

Strong System Backed Up With Money Back Guarantee

There isn't much information that is offered on the site it terms of reliability, there is no talk of data centres of what they have in place if a server was to fail. Neither is there any information on uptime. This isn't necessarily a bad thing however, of course it would give a confidence boost to be able to read about reliability, but from online reviews I can see that there isn't many issues in terms of uptime or reliability. DotEasy also provide a 30-day money back guarantee to its customers which does help balance things out a little.

Unlimited Plan Offers Great Features

There is a basic plan for $1.95 per month which is ideal for personal setups but what you really want to cast your eye over is the $4.95 per month unlimited plan which comes steeped in features and tools that you are sure to find handy.

You will receive 100GB of SSD storage, a free domain, and unlimited storage, bandwidth, databases and email accounts within that low $4.95 price, but you will also be able to take advantage of other free tools such as a web builder, CPanel and an easy to build forum.

There are managed hosting solutions and cloud hosting solutions available, that do come at a higher price but offer SSL certificates, and full website backups.

Good Support Channels With Video Tutorials

DotEasy have a great Support portal on the site which offers a selection of ways that you can get in touch with them, or find answers to questions. Live chat, ticket systems, phone and call back services are all available to utilize.

They even offer a contact address, and a case tracking feature where you can follow any service tickets that you may have submitted. A knowledge base and video tutorial section are also on hand for you to learn from.

Very Affordable Hosting Packages with Great Tools

The prices offered by DotEasy tend to range from the cheap to the more expensive depending on what type of hosting you are after. All hosting comes with a 30-day money back guarantee should you not be happy with the service provided.

If you are looking for the basic of the basic then you can pickup the starter plan for $1.95, but this does come with limited features and functionality. The popular plan is $4.95 which is an unlimited shared hosting option, and should suit most small to medium scaled businesses.

For the larger plans you are looking at plans that range from $29 up to $39, with the $39 plan being cloud hosting which is a reasonable price for this type of solution.

CPanel Comes With Each Hosting Plan

Everyone wants a control panel they either know of or can easily pick-up if they have never used on before. With CPanel, you are in great hands as it is offered across 90% of web hosting companies out there, and comes packed full of useful tools and features to make the most of your site and the hosting solution.

If you have never used CPanel then don't worry as it is very user-friendly and can be navigated around within a few minutes, so you will quickly learn where every tool is located.

The DotEasy site itself isn't too bad and offers good navigation and functionality, but can get a little confusing in areas, and you may find yourself lost when trying to find a particular hosting option.

Summary

A Solid Hosting Service With Plenty of Options to Choose From

Generally speaking the service offered by DotEasy is good, and the prices are very much in-line with what you would expect from a hosting company. Some information is unclear and some is missing, so we can't really provide accuracy to the reliability of the host, we can just take details from reviews that have been left by customers which is mostly positive.

The support options are great, they are only missing social assistance, and they are very user-friendly.

Pros

  • Good prices
  • Solid support area
  • 30-day money back guarantee
  • CPanel

Cons

  • Unclear on reliability and uptime
  • Lack of features in basic plan
  • No social support
