I started designing websites and providing Internet services to people all around the world in 1992 when Sympatico first came online. The Internet was my hobby while I was self-employed for 28 years in the construction industry as a painter and carpenter. I became so intrigued by the web, that I quickly gained knowledge with the how to of web design and web hosting. I learned from scratch how to write all the html code to design a website, because back then there were no instant site design softwares available, no html editors other than note pad.

What started out as a hobby, quickly grew into a business when people started emailing me for help on the web. Friends told friends, and those friends told other friends. Before I knew it word spread like wildfire that Randy (me) was the go to guy for support on the web. My email box was stuffed with emails from people around the world, asking me questions. I found myself working around the clock to help people. Finally I decided to leave the contracting business to do what I love doing, building websites and web hosting.

So in 2000, the turn of the century turned out to be the turn of a new life for me. My company Hosteasy Solutions was born. I had a mission not to be like everyone else on the Web. I didn’t want to just take people’s money. I wanted to truly serve and help people which I believe we are all here to do. I started offering high quality web hosting with great prices, but more importantly great customer support.

www.hosteazydomains.com was created to allow people to register their domains with us as well.

This long journey and commitment to excellence has allowed me to meet thousands of people on the Internet, everyone from techies to newbies and those in between. My greatest pleasure over the years is helping my clients who e-mail me with simple or high-tech questions from web design to software selections and use.

As a webhost provider I felt it was important to let people find our clients alot easier, thus the Webhost magazine was introduced and is now used to promote clients and non clients websites by driving traffic to them.

 

My Wife Sharon and I are also Sponsors of the YBC Program at www.willowbrooklanes.ca providing financial support through our company www.canadahost.ca by supporting families that cannot afford to pay for their kids to bowl in the YBC Leagues and other funds provided for cash prizes for the Bowler of the year tournaments.

**UPDATE** May 9 2017

It saddens me to let everyone know that after 25 years of providing web hosting services to so many thousands of clients that the time has now come to shut the business down.

My health has deteriorated to the point that I don’t want to leave anyone stranded should something happen to me.
With that being said, we will not be renewing any accounts when they come due for renewal so everyone will need to find another web host prior to expiration of your account.
I will assist you in any way I can to move your website provided that you host with someone that uses cPanel so we can just create a backup of your files and transfer them for you or you may already have someone that can do that for you.
It has been an awesome experience to work with you all over the years and I know i’m going to miss the business but unfortunately, I have to take care of myself now.

Best Regards to everyone and hoping for continued success for everyone.
