Hello Bobbydigital,
www.canaca.com is reselling for CommuniTech.net. But its ok. Lots of people are reselling as well...

Sometimes reseller are better than hosting companies because they can show more attention towards their clients (small amount) than the hosting companies.

You can try to email them and ask them a few questions and see how long does it take for them to respond.

Gordon.

Try Virtual Cities. They are a reseller of Communitech.com but a lower price US$15 a month for 350MB. Soon they are going to increase the price to $22, so take advantage of it now.

Cool

I am satisfied. Canaca-Com Inc. Sells it even cheaper then any other hosting company for what they offer. Their technical support answered my questions within 3 hours. I send in two requests and they were still 3 hours appart. I like that. Well i have decided to host my site at http://www.canaca.com .. thank you all for your help.

Careful of canaca.com for a couple of reasons:
They are resellers for communitech.net (check their IP address--it's owned by communitech.net). They also offer plans that are identical to the communitech.net reseller plans. This could be a major problem because if you buy from them and then they allow you to resell under their resellers agreement, and then they either leave communitech.net or do something that gets them kicked off, you lose not only your account but all accounts you have resold (because canaca had resold them to you and they have to keep their account open in order for your account to remain open). They also post numerous questions in communitech's support forums (including one complaining about communitech's name being in the header of an email that went to their clients):

I also would think that our clients got the same thing.

What troubles me most about canaca.com is that they also operate under the domain name nortel.to. Nortel is a large communications corporation that will probably not take kindly to some reseller of web hosting using their good name and reputation to resell hosting while pretending that they are the actual owners of the servers. When the real Nortel come down on canaca.com's nortel.to shell, well...I'd hate to be depending on them to be reselling services to me so that I kind resell them to some poor slob who doesn't know enough to thoroughly check out their host...
Just my 2 cents.

bobbydigital--
I just noticed that you have an isp ip address identical to "canaca" who posted an ad for canaca.com on the resellers section.
Hmmm--I bet you decided to go with canaca for hosting...since you are canaca

awwww Guest would a hosting company do that?... laughs softly...I bet it was a tough decision for them really... I mean host with themselves and risk having no one else to blame or host with themselves and ummm risk having no one else to blame.
Bobby/canaca self promotion is fine and many companies do it here but keep it within the spirit of the forum, blatant spamming is likely to ruin your reputation as well as give us a laugh.

actually you guys are right.... We had checked our stats and found that we had links comming from here. We or ( I ) wanted to know what people are saying about canaca. I work for canaca and dont own it. They do not know that i have posted this but.. i am sure they wouldn't say anything ( I think !)

anyhow guys sorry for the confusion. It was a test and nothing more. Just wanted to know who and what people have heard of it.

Well, if you just wanted to hear what ppl have to say about your company, then why don't you just ask? People here are honest enough to say what they think about you even if you tell them who you really are. This little "research" of yours probably caused more harm than good.

Maybe the answer to why and how this was done lies in the post 15 minutes after bobby's admission in the resellers thread. (now closed by the way)

Hey, bobbydigital/canaca,

It wasn't a test. It was a sleazy way to promote the company you claim to work for. Your "support" in the fourth post in this line proves it.

An honest, direct way of getting the answers you claim to seek would be to post something like "I work for canaca.com We would like to know the general impression of our service and any area we might need to improve. Your feedback would be appreciated."

That way, you get the answers and you don't treat us like idiots that won't see through your farce (which means you have no respect for us). I know many people wouldn't deal with any company that uses such underhanded tactics. Your "test" revealed much about your company, including some things that you weren't even aware were on it. The end result is that you failed your own test.

Thanks for conducting it, though. You've done some people a favor.

well as i said before i do work for them and it was all me that did it nobody else. You guys believe that you want. I am one of the technical support staff that works from home. They have alot of people not sure how many though. I think about 11 or 12 employees around the world working on technical support all the time. Canaca.com may be resellers but let me tell you, from experience dealing with 3 other companies i worked for, they do a good job. Defenetly worth the money.

Well have a good evening everyone...

PS> Why would someone pull up something i wrote 1 year ago when i started ? Lame asses.. Hard to find anything concise now that they have grown to one of the biggest communitech resellers.

Again sorry for all the trouble but if there is someone to blame its me... ( I learned not to do that again )

If they have 11 to 12 employees why dont they just get their own servers. They would make more money and they could do what they want with the servers.

Canaca sounds like a lying kid to me.

Hmmmm - could be, could be.... plenty otf them around. In the UK, we have just had a major host/isp 'vanish' without a trace. It was run by a 16 year old.Cant believe it got so much business.
