People beware of web hosting company called www.canaca.com
This company is managed by a bunch of thieves.
It offers an alleged excellent offer to seduce you: (10 GB web space, 200 GB montly bandwidth, 3.95 $ per month)
Nope, once you're there you're busted.
First they tell you when oredering that they need your phone number to call you for confirmation. And here come the first tide:
You'll receive this e-mail from canaca.com:
Now after taking your money, it's you who should call them.
We tried calling you with no luck. Please give us a call when you have
a minute. Our number is 1-800-823-9410 -or- +1-905-276-0658 for outside
Please note that once you call and speak to a rep they will be able to
activate your account for you without any problems.
It's Ok, let's continue:
They said that the call is free, and here's come the second tide:
THE CALL IS NOT FREE
Once YOU call and confirm, you need to send a dozen of begging e-mails to receive your login.
It's OK. You'll wait 1 week to receive your username and password.
The first week of hosting is great and everything is going fine. But once 10 days pass, your site will stop working, it will cease to exist. You can neither upload nor download, and you'll recieve a new e-mail, so prepare yourself for a third tide:
The IP address of your account has been blocked due to overloading the network by having lots of unusual connection.
Please provide us with explanations.
My goodness!!! Where's the 200 GB promised???
Whatever your explanation is, you'll receive this e-mail:
See guys, I can only use 10 % of my 200 GB.
What caused your account IP address to be blocked is using lots of bandwidth at a same time so the network can't handle. As you know, we have clearly mentioned in out TOS (http://canaca.com/contract.html) that you are not allowed to use the network resources more than 10% at a single moment. We had to block your IP address to prevent further disruptions in serving other accounts which are using the same network resources.
Anyway, if you assure us to avoid letting happen of such network abuses, we will unblock your account IP address and resume your hosting account.
My 200 GB dropped to 20 GB monthly.
And notice: http://canaca.com/contract.html
This page is hidden when you place your order. It only appears when they drop your 200 GB to 20 GB.
So you need now to accept the new rules, otherwise the hosting will be canceled and you can say goodbye to your money.
What is funny, is that on their home page, they said "30 days money back gurantee if you're not satisfied..."
Well this is a big lie. You'll never get your money back.
Jusr read the hidden page: http://canaca.com/contract.html:
So dream not of some money back.
If the issue is related to something that we did not promise you to provide then this 30 day money back guarantee will not apply.
Now, if you send more e-mails to protest and asking when your IP will be unblocked, you'll be punished and you'll receive this e-mail:
No, The IP address should be blocked for at least 4 days.
So now I lost my money, my bandwitdh dropped to 20 GB and I am punished for at least 4 days.
I don't know what is waiting for me in the next few days.
Don't worry, I'll let you know.
Meanwhile, please warn your friends:
BEWARE OF THESE THIEVES AT WWW.CANACA.COM
