Pricing and Support
Windows hosting plans offered by CanadianHost.ca are pretty costly compared to the average market price and you can pay for them on a monthly, quarterly, semi-annual or annual basis. However, all these billing cycles aren’t applicable to each plan, so you should review it during the checkout process. The company accepts only USD and CAD as the payment currencies. There are two payment methods offered: Mail in Payment and Credit card.
The company doesn’t offer any trial period or money-back guarantee.
You can contact the customer support helpdesk of CanadianHost.ca through phone (one regular and one toll-free), email, and ticket (restricted for registered users). I tried their email support but failed to receive any reply.
Though CanadianHost.ca has a Knowledge base (access restricted), it lists only one article. The Downloads page also has nothing to download.
