Great Responsive Support with a System that continues to Improve
Henry A Castillo,

I was someone who wanted the most affordable option, and with Bluehost I found a solution. I have used Bluehost for years, and one thing that was always of quality was their support.
Their system was not the most user friend... More ly at the beginning, but it has since made huge strides.
Reviewing my server, installing WordPress, accessing my backups; are all easy to do now with little to no struggle.
I'm so impressed with their commitments to improving their services and products that I'm here writing this review.

Amazing Wordpress Host
Guanyin (Jimmy) Zhao,

I moved my Wordpress site to CanSpace from GoDaddy a few weeks ago and it has been FLYING ever since. I actually just assumed Wordpress was a slow platform but the support guys at CanSpace helped me optimize my site and it's ... More performing at least 2-3x faster than before which is amazing. I literally just reached out to their support for tips and they offered to log in and do it for me. They also did an imap-to-imap transfer to move all my email over which was greatly appreciated and a bottleneck with migrating to any other provider I was considering. Email is also working better than before. I'm a happy customer! Less

They will steal your money after you cancel... and even try to steal your password!
Jullian Hartford-Smith,

I cancelled my Bluehost account in 2018, as the platform is unstable and glitchy. But alas, I was charged for the account in 2019... and 2020... and 2021. Each year I have contacted Bluehost to make sure my account is cancell... More ed, and ask for a refund of the unauthorised charges. Each year they have refused to refund.
Finally today I managed to get Bluehost to refund the 2021 charge - after 3 hours talking with their staff. They refused to refund the 2019 and 2020 charges, even though I gave them the reference number showing I cancelled in 2018.
So they still owe me approx. AU$450!
To process the 2021 refund the staff member said she needed the last four characters of my password, sent to her via chat. That is an absolute 'no-no' in IT! How dodgy is this company? Even dodgier than it appears on the surface I suspect.

Three Words: Host From Hell
Johanna Anderson,
2.0
Have been doing business using the same domains for more than 15 years and upon transferring them to CanSpace almost half of my contact list says my emails are going to their spam filter - only Gmail accounts were reliably re... More ceiving 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. Less
