Absolute Trash Fire (Avoid At All Costs!!)

So I assume by the general consensus of the reviews hear you've got the gist already, but I thought I'd add my 2 cents to the pile anyway.
Site5 was OK a few years ago when it had (limited) phone support but still had some i... More ssues (it's native Wordpress Installer didn't work for example). Since it sold out to EIG a while back however it's been in a state of steady decline. There's been too many issues to list of late but here's a small sample:
- Not updating PHP on my server leading to one of my websites getting hacked
- the "WHM" area where all websites are accessed being housed on a domain with an outdated SSL again leaving it vulnerable
- Charging me for things I didn't order
- The Live Chat box glitches out if there's more than one tab open
- Continuous price hikes with no warning
As such the service has become something I wouldn't wish upon my enemies. There are some aspects that I like such as (limited) access to Cpanel and Max Upload Filesize of 1000mb on websites however generally speaking I'd suggest people avoid this platform like the plague. I can only imagine that inertia is what's allowing them to retain whatever is left of their customer base but it seems like it's only a matter of the time before the sink ships altogether. Anyway, glad to be done with them!!

Does not let me to dashboard

When you create an account it will ask for project name and you cannot skip it. If you enter project name it will ask that name is already exist. When you try to enter another name it says'too many requests' and then we have ... More to wait for hours. After you create a website it will archive your account and click restore. It will be pending to review and your site will not be available live for hours or days.
Don't waste your time. I recommend hostbreak fast and affordable.
