Love them
Jeanne Wilmot,
9.2
The 24/7 live chat has saved me many times and is always very helpful. I wish the domain hosting were included in the reseller so I could set up the domains for clients more easily. Would be nice to be able to invoice client... More s directly from the reseller account or at least have multiple credit cards for payments from clients. The free SSL is great considering how much others charge. But it is a nuisance to constantly have to regenerate the certifications. This is the 4th hosting provider I have used in 5 years. So far have stayed the longest with them. After the big name ones, this customer service is a dream come true. Less
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

Fraudulent Billing and Renewal Billing Practices
Jonathan Howard,
2.0
This company (which provides very average and normal service) engages in dishonest and deceptive billing tactics. Two years in a row I was billed incorrectly. This year - I cancelled - using their very complicated method an... More d they still charged me. I am disputing and filing complaints with the State.
Everyone should know they are a terrible company with terrible customer service. I recommend staying away.

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
