Why Our Customers Love Us

Steven Bennett, Founder @ Cookingforthecurious.com

Doteasy have been absolutely fantastic over the years. The customer support team have always gone out of their way to help us and they have hosting packages available that help you to grow in an affordable organic way. When I first started, I knew nothing about websites, yet I was still able to get a project off the ground pretty easily. I can honestly say, I am not sure things would have progressed this far without their help.

Linda Clement, Author and Parenting Coach @ Raisingparents.net

I've been doing my own website design since 2003, pretty much forever, in terms of how long websites have been a 'thing' ... and obviously it is something I'm happy with. I had the opportunity to have the design team tweak my site, and WOW! The simple changes to the colour palette and images have made my site pop.

It is so much more professional looking, modern and fresh, with just small changes to the overall look, I am seriously impressed. They were fast, thorough and understood who I am and what I do, and now I have a beautiful, functional site here.

Fran Lee, Former Art Director at Sanrio, Graphic Designer @ Fran-lee.com

I've been using your services for about 10 years. I just wanted to say thank you for your excellent service and support. Your support staff has always been so kind, helpful, smart and understanding. I'm a nervous nellie when it comes to doing this stuff (building websites), and you've walked me through the hard parts smoothly and efficiently. Seems I can always count on you.

Raj Sooknanan, Founder @ oscarsforheart.com

I have been using Doteasy for over 10 years and have grown my business drastically while using their hosting services. I have always found their customer service to be top notch. When you combine their responsiveness with the 100% up time I have experienced, you can see why I have been with them for this long.

Ariane Colenbrander, Founder @ Vancouverscape.com

We've had our site hosted by Doteasy for years now. Their tech support team is super helpful when we come across issues with our site and were there to walk us through the necessary steps when we decided to migrate to a business plan in line with our site's growing amount of visitors. They're a great company to do business with. Working with a local company also means not having to deal with different time zones and long-distance call costs.

Laura Pongetti, Web Designer, Owner @ Microexpresscomputerrepair.com

Many times I have worked with the team members at Doteasy. Some excel in different areas, and others are exceptional and go beyond their daily 'call of duties.' Just today I responded to Edwin from Doteasy on how professional he was in handling my questions. He truly deserved a rating of a Perfect 10. Being a business owner since 1988, I know the true meaning of an exceptional worker and Edwin more than shined today. I appreciated all your help... keep on shining.

For the Love of God fortheloveofchrist.ca

I just wanted to recognize these two employees as they are both amazing. I spoke to Ken and he helped me with my site statistics and setting up a bunch of other things. He was so patient and knowledgeable. Eric, I spoke with on the next day as I was setting up my mobile site view and he was amazing too and even gave me a call back as he tried to change something for me. Anyway they are both amazing. Great customer service!

Rita Saikali Carter, Architect @ Ritascarter.com

Customer service is king! I've been with Doteasy for 11 years & they've been awesome to communicate with throughout... sticking with them.

FAQs

  • What is web hosting?

    Web hosting allows your website to be seen publicly online. You need a web hosting plan to store your website's files (info, images, text, and other content that make up your site) so your website can be published and visible on the internet.

    All of Doteasy's web hosting plans include the features you need to create and run a fast and reliable website. Doteasy stores your website files securely in BC, Canada. Doteasy web hosting plans include free secure SSL and custom domain emails, offering incredible value and everything you need for your online presence to succeed. You also get access to cPanel, the industry's leading web hosting control panel, so you can easily manage your site.

  • How much does it cost to host a website?

    Website hosting allows your website files to be stored and seen on the internet. This is typically a monthly ongoing cost, with a medium size website costing around $15/month and up. The cost of web hosting plans are dependant on the resources and performance you require for your website. Your requirements will vary based on your website content and site visitor traffic. The goal is to choose a web hosting plan that has the features and resources to allow your website to run smoothly, with maximum uptime.

    Doteasy web hosting plans start at $3.75/month. In addition to web hosting, plans include professional domain emails, SSL security, a site builder, WordPress, and more. As your website grows, you can always make changes to your hosting plan to increase resources for your business needs. Owning a website is much more affordable than you'd think with Doteasy Web Hosting!

  • Can I host my own website?

    While you can host a website yourself, it is uncommon and not recommended. To host a website on your Windows PC, you will need to install WAMP software, upload your site files with HTML written in text files with the .php extension, and go to "Apache" to allow your files to be seen online. Note that self-hosting your website can be done to learn about how websites work, but is not recommended for a fully functional, professional website. There are many disadvantages to self-hosting a website: as home computers are intended for personal use, your self-hosted website will be slow. You will need to ensure your computer is on at all times, and will need a backup system in case of hardware or power failures. You must also take care of hardware and software maintenance, electrical bills, and technical knowledge on your own. If you want to focus on making a successful website, you will need professional website hosting services, which is what Doteasy is here for!

    By hosting your website files with a professional web hosting provider like Doteasy, you can ensure optimum uptime for your website. With Doteasy, your website data will be stored in our powerful data centres for security, power, and performance.

  • Where are Doteasy's web servers located?

    Your web hosting will be stored on our web servers in Greater Vancouver, Canada, and our team is fully located in our Greater Vancouver offices. With Canadian web hosting, you'll experience enhanced data privacy protection and secure, advanced website technology.

    Canada places personal privacy as a top priority, and has some of the strictest privacy protection policies in the world. Doteasy is governed by PIPEDA (Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act), which was created to protect personal information and promote consumer trust. Canada is also home to some of the most advanced web hosting technology in the world, so you can benefit from reliable and fast web hosting with Doteasy.

  • Can I buy a domain name without web hosting?

    You certainly can buy a domain name without web hosting. You simply need to register the domain name you want, and you will be the owner of the domain name as long as you continue to renew your domain name registration.

    There are many benefits to buying a domain without website hosting. Every domain name is unique, which means that once you have registered a domain name, no other user can have the same domain name as you. It is beneficial to buy an available domain name to reserve for your future use.

    Buying a domain name also allows you to maintain control over the domain and protect your brand identity. For example, if you own a business but are not ready to make a website, you can purchase the domain with your business name to prevent others from buying it. This can protect your brand from being diluted or tarnished by others. Buying multiple domain extensions (i.e. the last part of a domain name like .com, .net, .ca, etc.) with your brand name is another way to protect your brand identity.

    At Doteasy, you can buy a domain name starting at $8.50/year. Domains at Doteasy also include free domain privacy protection, domain forwarding, advanced DNS controls, and a free parked page.

  • How should I choose my domain name for my website?

    A domain name is the memorable, unique web address that visitors can type into the browser to access your website, such as www.doteasy.com. Once you have registered a domain name, no other user can have the same domain name as you.

    Choosing the right domain name is crucial because it defines your brand and can affect your search engine rankings and online presence.

    To begin, search for a website name that is easy to type and remember. The goal of your domain name is to be memorable and easy to associate with your business. Your domain name should reflect your brand and services. You could also consider including the name of your city to target local audiences.

    Be sure to choose the right domain name extension, which is the last part of a domain name (e.g. ".com," ".net," ".ca," etc.). 43% of all domains have the ".com" extension, so choosing a ".com" extension is a popular choice that visitors will be more likely to remember. However, choosing a country code domain extension, such as ".ca" for Canadians, can help you target the right audience and compete better in search engines for local searches. If your website is for a nonprofit organization, ".org" is a popular domain name extension that can reflect your website's purpose.

    At Doteasy, you can register a domain name on its own from $8.50/year - and you can get a free domain name with all of our hosting plans! Eligible free domain extensions include .com, .net, .org, .us, .biz, .info, and .mobi.

  • How much does a domain name cost?

    A domain name is the memorable, unique web address that visitors can type into the browser to access your website, such as www.doteasy.com. Once you have registered a domain name, no other user can have the same domain name as you. A domain name is typically a yearly cost, ranging from around $15/year and up. The cost of a domain name varies based on the domain extension, which is the last part of a domain name (e.g. ".com," ".net," ".ca," etc.). The central domain registry of each domain name extension controls the cost of the domain name extension, which is why the domain name costs vary based on their domain extension.

    At Doteasy, you can register a domain name on its own from $8.50/year - and you can get a free domain name with all of our hosting plans! Eligible free domain extensions include .com, .net, .org, .us, .biz, .info, and .mobi.
