We've been around since 1996. Our parent company, Beck Web Servers & Design has been doing hosting and web development since then. Since March, 2000, we have also operated InstantDomainRegistration.com, a .com, .net, .biz, .info, and .org Domain Registration site.
Our hosting business has been built on service to our customers. Our staff often goes the extra mile (kilometer :-)) to help our clients out. We've noticed some CIRA Certified Registrars with cheaper prices, but you've got to ask yourself what kind of service they are going to be able to provide in the LONG TERM, when Registrars pay the same fee to CIRA, or even how long they'll survive under those conditions.
We feel that our price has been set fairly. We have never operated any of our business units with the mind set of gouging customers when an opportunity arises that could be exploited. We, on the other hand, believe in a fair price for good service and longevity. The Domain Registration business requires both labour and equipment infrastructure. Without an adequate profit margin to allow the purchase and maintenance of these things, something would have to give.
We hope that you'll be able to recognize this and that you can count on Canadian Domain Name Services Inc. when if you ever have a problem. That's important. When we get new hosting clients that transfer from other hosting companies, they often say,
"I couldn't believe you responded to my support message, and fixed my problem, the same day. My old hosting company would take a week, if I got a response at all!"
