Site5 Reviews



From Site5's own site: "Our current hosting philosophy is based on guaranteed performance. While other hosts may try to cram as many accounts as possible on shared servers, we have used our years of experience and the technical analysis performed by our technical gurus to determine exactly how many accounts we should be putting on any given server. In addition, we are continually upgrading our hardware platforms to be among the best in the industry."

"Awesome support. They usually reply 5-10 minutes after you submit your ticket with a logical answer. Can't ask for more..."

"Site5 has been a solid experience overall for me. Developers probably want to look into more hardcore services, as setting up things as simple as RoR can be a chore, and their PHP support is limited for security reasons. Still, for simply hosting WordPress blogs that get a small amount of traffic, it does the job."

"Yesterday was my 1st year anniversary of hosting with Site5, it was certainly a happy one. After a bumpy ride with some other hosts I was referred to Site5 by a friend. So far my experience with Site5 has been excellent and beyond my expectations. Site5's support staff is extremely helpful and I have not experienced any noticeable downtime in the past year. "

"All of my sites hosted on this server are down lately at least a couple times a week. These guys are turning into an unrelaiable web host."

"Support is growing progressively worse. Multiple server outages every day. Email down at least twice each month. My suggestion - Find another host."

"I've been with Site5.com for eight years, and used to be extremely happy (fast tech support response, high reliability, attentive owners). For the last three years, however, it's been going downhill, especially since it was moved to/sold to/bought by to ThePlanet. Tech support response times that used to be in minutes is now in the high hours, and even into days, before I get anything back. They have a "General Feedback, Comments, and Suggestions" forum where we can offer opinions on their hosting, but only the poster and Site5 can read it so you can't see other people's complaints. In November of 2006 my SSH access stopped working. I spend thirty hours trying to get some response from tech support: no dice. Finally I emailed every person on the management team with my problem, and the issue was quickly resolved. They said they were hiring new tech support people to reduce wait times, but thirty hours is absurd. 22 hours ago I got a notice from them that one of my accounts has too many files, and unless it is fixed within 72 hours it would be suspended. I immediately tried to logon and investigate, but the account is already suspended and the website is down, which means I can't do anything to address their concerns. Repeated queries to their tech support (they do email and web tickets, but no phone tech support) have been ignored. I tried the tech support chat link, but nobody answers. There are now only three people on the Management Team list (none of the original owners); trying them has gotten me nowhwere. So, I've got no access, no response, no sign that there's anybody home, and no certainty of a solution. Looks like it's time to jump ship."
