|Doteasy is horrible! I purchased a 2-year domain registration because it came with free hosting. After a year, they were charging $24 for basic hosting which I thought was included since the price I paid to register my domain was considerably higher then your standard pricing. |
I decided to find a suitable alternative and allowed doteasy hosting to expire. After it expired, I planned on using the remaining time on my domain and getting hosting somewhere else. Not the case. Doteasy removed all of the previous options in my member account so that I didn't have any access to my DNS to redirect the IP address. I contacted them for support. I got an email shortly after stating that I needed to pay $24 plus a $15 of late fee to receive support. I'm a paid customer with one more year remaining on my domain!!!
In addition, they tried charging $24 to my company credit card when DOTEASY HAD NO AUTHORIZATION to do so. Fortunately the credit card was declined since it does not get funded unless there are scheduled expenses. Currently I'm unable to access my website or get any support from doteasy though I have fully paid my domain. I'm losing money everyday my site is down, getting no support all of while doteasy uses my site to advertise for themselves.
What a piece of work! DOTEASY IS DISHONEST AND NOT TO BE TRUSTED!

|Stay away from Doteasy! They will offer a good service for a very reasonable price. Then after a year or multiple thereof (when you no longer need the website), they will send you a very ambiguous email with two options, after the website has expired. The intent of the email is unclear and most people will ignore it. If you do (like I did) they will take the money out of your account using your credit card details without your permission. The credit card company will tell you that they cannot recover the money. As well as that try talking to Doteasy, not only will they not give you the money back they will not tell you why they took it. They are basically stealing. I am thinking of contacting the police department in Burnaby. Be warned stay away!!|

|My usual host for websites are HostPapa or GoDaddy but I gave DotEasy a try. Not impressed! I have not been able to upload revised site files to the site they are hosting for me and I received one response from them regarding my request for assistance and it was NOT trying to asset me in fixing the problem! With what I have experienced thus far, I can NOT recommend DotEasy. There are many hosting sites out there, my suggestion is to pay a little extra and not have to put up with questionable service.|

|I've been at war with doteasy. They sent me a note that my website was expiring and I needed to renew. Did not renew and they charged my credit card without permission anyway. I don't seem to be alone from what I read. I even filed consumer complaint with the Canadian Better Business Bureau.|

|WARNING!!! Stay away from Doteasy. After getting your credit card details they will trick you out of every cent they can get. They will lock up your domain names, (this is never obvious until you actually try to transfer your domain name away from them). They will deduct hidden charges you didn't know about, and charge you a huge fee (we were charged over US$100.00) for giving you back your own domain name if it happens to have expired, even for one day. Their "support staff" appear to have been told to pretend to not understand any enquiry you make - unless there's money in it for Doteasy. Doteasy are fraudsters, swindlers and tricksters of the worst kind. They ripped us off and they will rip you off.|

|I have had three websites hosted with Doteasy since 2002 because of the free hosting, but especially lately, the sites have been hacked with malware scripts. I liked the free hosting though they have now discontinued it, but I cannot risk my sites being hosted on their servers anymore. Yes, I've changed my passwords, but the hacking continues, and the problem must be with the level of security with their servers. Buyer beware.|

|Doteasy has taken extra money from my account without my permission. That said it all.|

|I have been a customer with doteasy since 2002 or so.|
Had many domains registered with em in the past and i have currently about 7. As i do web design i have my customers and their web sites hosted by doteasy.
People are either non-web literrate or stupid when they said that doteasy does this and that.
I only get what i need from doteasy...and what they are giving me is worthy.
Nobody ever took from me what I need.
Having said that, i say don't read stupid comments because those guys either are hating their ex-bosses or gave up in reading or learning how to use html, forward a domain, forward an email, delete a code from a compromised java script file, set up permissions for ftp or file uploads, folders, etc etc.
If you planning to host a domain, and you don't like doteasy, then hire someone who can.
What a crazy world....leaving your whole life in the diaper and complain that your milk is cold.
Wake up!!! Doteasy offers fast servers with searchable google engine on low budget and affirdable cost...35 bucks per year for a pure html+dhtml+js site
100mb storage 1gb monthly bandwidth 10 email accounts
What more can u possibly complain of????
Duh...for 35 bucks...you have it all if you know the basics

|Doteasy is the worst hosting company I ever dealth with. It is small burnaby BC company that is not comparable with Godaddy or Justhost. It has one of the worst service I ever experience, usual response time for support ticket takes up to 12 hours on weekdays, up to 16 hours on weekends, and NO live support to contact 24/7! |
Their shared server has very low security measurements as the hacker attacks frequently and they have no way of preventing it. They will blame on your end and lie never admit their false. Many times I was told my script or setup is wrong but infect it was their tech issues always having issues.
I never ever had such horrible experience with other hosting providers. I recommend to stay away from them unless you want to deal with all the troubles later on when use them!

|At first, I thought doteasy's offer was a great one but unfortunately, after making a 5 year subscription with their service, I found out that they do not offer then most basic feature for general hosting which is 'CRONJOB'. If you're planning to host a site without the use of cronjob, they are fine but not the best or cheapest. If 'CRONJOB' feature is a must, avoid doteasy at all cost! They will ask you to upgrade your hosting plan which will cost around 3xper month. Them bastards!|
