Moved to Canvas Host to solve my PCI DSS compliance issues
George Williams,

Was hosting with Godaddy; couldn't solve 2 issues with PCI compliance, in spite of having a VPS there. Moved to canvas host; no software changes, just uploaded my backup files. Ran PCI scan, passed with 100%, no warnings, no ... More issues at all, first time.
I recommend them if you need PCI DSS compliant hosting. They have hardened, compliant hosting solutions, framed in a familair CPanel.Net based environment. Won't break your wallet, either.

Login page says "This site is restricted" I have tried to resolve the issue with 6 different support agents, spent more than 2 hours each time, and none of them has been able to help me out. Those guys are completely useless.... More Do yourself a favor and keep your stuff away from this host! Less

DCP LTD,

Absolutely shocking...do not even think about email /server hosting. I am UK based and although they show a UK support number it is never picked up. Their recent server migration has been a fiasco resulting in several days of... More not being able to receive/send emails and have lost hundreds of saved mail. Now 2 weeks in and still issues. Try and call them....no response. Clueless. Less
