Can't order online, any other way?


I can't order online, no credit card, etc. Is there any way for me to get hosting? I'm in Scarborough, Toronto, Canada. I thought I was lucky to find a company located right next to my house, detail hosting, now hoster direct, with great prices but now it looks like they aren't very reliable. Any suggestions?

Do you know of any cheaper hosts that accept this method? And money orders internationally (from Canada?)

Most who accept money orders require you to pay for a full year.

Try hostgator, they accept Money Orders, but be prepared to pay for a full year

You may also want to have a look at Western Union payments as some hosts may also accept this as a form of alternative payment.

Paypal sounds like a good option for you if you have a bank account, as a lot of hosts these days accept paypal. Assuming you do not have a bank account, ask your host to take your order and provision/install it upon receipt of your payment. Make sure to get your payment to them in a timely manner. Some hosts will do this and others will not. Some hosts will not bother to take payment via check for initial setups on smaller accounts because 99% of their customers have credit cards and they do not need that extra 1%.

Their reviews here @ WHT are not that great....

But, you might want to look at:

Question: Can I pay using a check or money order?
Answer: Yes, once the payment is received your account will be created. Your payment should be mailed to:

Theowne,

I would recommend hunting down a local ISP to see if they offer Web hosting and would also allow you to pay via check/money order - either by bringing it by each month, or dropping it in the mail. You'll generally pay more, but the service will also be loads better with a locally-focused host.

I don't know how your ISPs are, but I would prefer a hosting company that is totally or majorly in the hosting business, and not doing it as an "addon" to their main business.

I guess it's different around here then. It may also help that I know many of the folks who run the ISPs around here. Anyway, around here (Virginia, USA) the local ISPs are really good.

Hostgator looks like a good service, and I'm alright with paying yearly of course.

I am always suspicious of Paypal because of how many complaints I read all the time about them...

I'd certainly like a local host but all the ones around here don't seem very reliable or cost way more then they should for less features.

Paypal is becoming more and more trustworthy, especially for the buyer. In the past it has always been the seller that has had the majority of problems, and usually only those sellers that are less than reputable. However paypal is now FDIC, has credit cards, resolves complaints, etc... More and more major hosts are starting to accept it.

Paypal is actually quite reliable, if you are in the online business paypal is almost a must. As for the hosting, most hosts that I know take money orders or checks but you do indeed have to pay for a year of hosting in advance.
