Good service!
Taylor Rogers,

I requested consultation, they attempted to call me several times but I never answered(totally my fault) but they definitely did try to reach me. Time differences just always had the calls coming in in the middle of the night... More for me. I figured out what I had needed. Thank you Less

Shopify isn't a normal hosting company. They are basically a business partner and online store portal. They do offer hosting for people who are using their services though, and if that is you, they are great. They do a good j... More ob at getting your ecommerce site up and running right away and their hosting is very stable. If you want to start an online store, Shopify is the best in Canada. Less

The worst hosting service ever, don't use it!
Giulio Coraggio,

My website has been down for over a week to date, I contacted the customer support 10+ times, they always argue that the matter has been escalated to a higher support team that will respond in further 24-72 hours. Also, back-... More up data are apparently stored in the same servers as the production data, which is the most incompetent move ever. I have never seen such a poor service. Less

Shopify might be well known in the industry but it’s too expensive when it comes to typical web hosting. If you’re a beginner at site-building or don’t have a lot of requirements, you’ll probably want to steer clear of Shopify. BlueHost is a much cheaper, all-round service that can support its customers with all their web hosting requirements. It has VPS, dedicated servers, and other hosting services, and they all come compatible with major coding languages like PHP. Customers of BlueHost also get a great choice of database and content management systems.
