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 ...Read Morecan't beat $5 for a domain name that comes with private WHOIS! If you're just shopping around for cheap domain names or getting the most features for the least rate, then Doteasy might not be for you. But if you're serious about getting a domain name and website then you won't regret giving Doteasy a chance. I've set up my clients on Doteasy and I've no complaints so far.Less

Top-notch IT support and customer service!

I've used Doteasy for my site hosting and domain registration for over 10 years, and I always get a prompt and helpful response to any questions or concerns. Their tech support is top-notch!

Best customer service

I've been with Doteasy for several years and I have to say that their customer service is really amazing. They always answer quickly and explain everything in great detail. I feel totally comfortable with them. I love them.

The worst

1.2
They will try to hold your domain hostage if you try to transfer service and make every attempt to persuade you to do it the way they "recommend" so it can be done quicker- aka give them access to your desired new host. And byou h...Read Moreave to contact them by phone to even get that far. Otherwise, they'll claim your request is "being reviewed" and they can't predict how long it will take. Since when does an owner or administrator need permission to move their domain? It's a crock and they're a mess.Less

SLOW Hosting Regardless of Package

2.4
I have been with Doteasy for 14 years (from 2006) My site gradually but surely started to slow down and "resource limit exceeded"
So I upgraded, this worked ok for a year the again "resource limit exceeded"
So I upgraded yet aga...Read Morein (2GB RAM and DUAL CORE) and this worked well for 3 HOURS then again "resource limit exceeded"
During these upgrades my site has dropped in visits/traffic by more than 5 times it was for 8 years because its so slow and most of the times its off line anyway.

Each time I querie the "resource limit exceeded" they have elaborate excuses such as website coding, Google Bots and other rubbish excuses
If my site has 5 or more visitors at the same time then "resource limit exceeded"

It is so bad than you cannot even FTP because "maximum allowed users"

I can guarantee if I get business hosting I will get "resource limit exceeded"

Stay away from DOT EASY FOR DOMAINS!!!

1.0
Stay away from DOT easy for Domains. DO NOT BUY THEM AT A DISCOUNT FROM THEM as they violate CIRA Regulations for domain transfers to other registrars to force you to renew your domain with them then allow you to transfer after 60...Read More days after you pay them a fee.

CIRA REGULATIONS ARE CLEAR ON THE MATTER. Section 3.5 of the CIRA Registration Agreement that allows domain owners to move their domains at any time without limitation.

Customer Service Fail

1.0
They switch systems last year and manage to lock me out of my member zone account. I had to mail a notarized letter and a copy of my passport in order to request my login information that they had change on me and sent to an expir...Read Moreed email account. I had been a customer for 13 years and one day I'm locked out. After I recovered it, I decided I wanted to change providers because of the awful customer service and was told I had to wait 60 days before I could make changes. 60 days have passed, I have repeated requested to unlock my domain to change registrars and they still have not unlocked it. I've been talking to their customer service for two days for a simple thing like unlocking the domain.Less

Reliability

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.

Features

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.

 

Support

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.

Pricing

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.

User-Friendly

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
