Website Hosting Canada

Carried out research into hosting a website in Canada.

The site is for a website for a Chalet located in BC, Canada.

So a IP address based in Canada was required with a plus point being servers based in BC. This I feel will help with search engine results.

Looked at companies to host the site in Canada.

There was 4 suitable companies.

Dayana Host

http://www.dayanahost.com/

Price per month: $3.99 (Three year contract)
Disk: 10GB
Transfer: 100GB*

Hosted in BC, Canada

Black Sun

*Monthly transfer or Bandwidth is volume of your site's traffic.

The recommendation is Dayana Host. Due to the professional website. Speed of their own site, price and band width, and disk size. Also the IP address will be in Canada, BC. Seemed to be the most professional.

BBC Radiio 4 Any Questions? - Cast your net wider, and be more inclusive of society, with who you invite onto the program.

Wrote to Radio 4 Any Questions today after listening to this weeks program.

BBC Radio 4 - Any Questions?

Yet again we were subjected BARONESS DEECH and DOUGLAS MURRAY extreme ignorance on every subject they were asked about.

Repeatedly the program has the same guests on. OK if they add intelligence to the program but when such ignorance is spoken it is not acceptable.


Hi,

These Oxford and privately educated people may think they are educated but the minute they open their mouths we hear differently.

Why do we have to be repeatedly subjected to these narrow minded ignorant people.

They do not speak with knowledge but gossip, spreading untruths. Repeatedly using the terms "I understand" , "I think", "I heard".

Please no longer subject us to these over confident fools. Who think it is all a jolly jape to be so offensive to our sensibilities.

Cast your net wider, and be more inclusive of society, with who you invite onto the program. 

Regards,

Simon

Euro Systems, Glasgow - Bad service

Euro System how they treat a charity

Last December I started working for a charity, web development and IT Support.

The website was hosted by a euro systems Govan, Glasgow.

There was problems with euro systems servers and email. AOL was rejecting our email due to their DNS settings.

So we held a meeting with euro systems.

The meeting was agreeable. They promised to sort the problems out and invoice us for to continue to host our site.

After the meeting it was impossible to get a reply to our email or return our calls.

Last Friday, 22-1-2010, I spoke to a sales person. I was told the owner was in hospital and would be back to work on Tuesday.

No phone call from the owner.

I phoned on Tuesday. Spoke to the receptionist, and asked her to get him to call me back.

Through the week I called again no luck.

On Friday we could not access our email.

Phoned Euro Systems. Sales person answered the call.

Told me that they would no longer be hosting our site. As they decided not to continue to be a re-seller. So they did not pay the bill with who they were a reseller for.

No warning. They just cut of us like that. Did not inform us , so we could have taken action and moved our site to another hosting company.

These people are just incompetent.

Make your own decisions about wether to use the services of Euro Systems.
