Doteasy’s Managed Hosting Plan: The perfect management solution for any website

September 21st, 2011

What is Managed Hosting?

Managed Hosting is perfect for customers who need some extra help in maintaining their website so that they can focus more on their business. With Managed Hosting, we maximize the security, administration and maintenance of your website for you. Whenever you need to update your website content or upgrade your web apps, we recommend that you come to us first and have our Managed Hosting support team handle it for you. On top of our regular hosting service support, you will get extra support on managing and maintaining your website.

What does Managed Hosting include?

Managed Hosting gives you all of the features you would normally get with your hosting plan, plus one hour of website administration service. Here are some website administration services that are included with Managed Hosting that you wouldn’t normally see with regular hosting support.

  • Installation and upgrades for many open source web apps such as WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal
  • HTML website updates such as image changes, logo changes, and contact info updates
  • Setup of Doteasy web tools and hosted applications for your website
  • Import, export, and optimization of your MySQL databases
  • Automated website backup
  • Email archiving and log checking
  • Install 3rd party SSL certificates
  • Basic script debugging
  • Website data migration
  • Toll free phone support

How much does it cost?

Our Managed Hosting add-on service costs $28.95 per month in addition to the cost of your hosting plan. If on any month you exceed the one hour of administration time, you can purchase additional administration service hours from us at a discounted rate of $50.00 per hour (regular price $75.00 per hour). For complete details of the services included in our Managed Hosting Plan or subscription inquires, please contact our Customer Support team or submit an online ticket.

 

Opting out of Doteasy’s Mailing System

March 22nd, 2011

We periodically send out promotional mailings and member newsletter to our web hosting members via email. The purpose of these emails is to inform our members of the latest promotions and sales, as well as service offer updates – it is our communication channel with our users.

Many of our members have multiple web hosting accounts and receiving multiple copies of the same newsletter (one for each account) could fill up an inbox quickly. That is why we’ve provided an opt-out link at the bottom of all our promotional mailings and newsletters. If you scroll down to the very bottom of the received newsletter, you’ll see the following:

 

If you prefer not to receive further promotional mailings or member newsletters from Doteasy, you may choose to unsubscribe via the following link and we will promptly update your preferences.

 

https://member.doteasy.com/index.cfm?R=OPO

Or mail us a written request to: UNSUBSCRIBE, Doteasy Technology Inc., Suite 210 – 3602 Gilmore Way, Burnaby, BC, V5G 4W9, Ca

 

What happens when you click on the link?

You’ll be redirected to the Member Zone sign-in page. After the sign-in greeting page, you’ll see the “Opt-out Doteasy Member Newsletter” confirmation page.

 

All you have to do is click on the “Confirm Opt Out” button” and you will not be sent further promotional mailings or newsletters.

I confirmed opt-out, but I am still receiving promotional emails from Doteasy

Do you have more than one account with Doteasy? If yes, you will have to sign into each of your accounts to confirm opt-out.

If you require assistance, just let us know via our Contact Us form.

However, we do not recommend members opting out of all promotional newsletters. If you opted out of all newsletters on all your Doteasy accounts, you will not be notified of any new offers or sales. If you have multiple accounts with us, you may wish to opt out of all but one. That way, you’ll still receive one copy of the newsletters to take advantage of any sale offers you might be interested in.

Will I still be sent service maintenance notices and/or renewal notices?

Definitely! Because the service maintenance notices and service renewal reminders are not promotional newsletters, you will continue to receive them. Service maintenance notices include server migration and server upgrade notifications. Renewal reminders include hosting service and domain registration renewals.

cPanel Upgrade Offer

January 24th, 2011

We’re giving away free cPanel upgrades!

Some of you might already have received our free cPanel upgrade offers, we’ve been randomly sending out offers via email in the past week or so. But in case you are wondering what cPanel is and what it can do for you, allow us to give you more information.

What is cPanel?

cPanel is a Linux-based control panel that allows you to easily access a wide variety of features of your web hosting account, including email management, website statistics, database administration and more. cPanel also allows you to host and manage multiple domains on a single web hosting account.

You can find more information on the cPanel at: http://www.doteasy.com/web-hosting-articles/overview-of-cpanel-hosting.cfm

What can you do with cPanel?

One of the main attractions of the cPanel is Fantastico, an automatic script installer that gives you access to a huge library of scripts (ie. blogs, forums, galleries, etc.). However, if you are currently using our Basic Web Hosting plan, your web hosting account does not support databases or scripts and you will not be able to install scripts on your account.

But, you can still enjoy the other great features of cPanel, including:

  • website statistics
  • host multiple add-on domains
  • backup website
  • manage email account and services
  • customize DNS settings

What do you need to do to take advantage of the free upgrade offer?

All you need to do is send us a request via our Contact Us form at:

https://www.doteasy.com/ContactUs/SMS3/index.cfm?D=8K8w9W

Oh, do make sure you’ve backed up all your website files prior to submitting your upgrade request as you will be required to republish your files once the upgrade is completed.
