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- the "WHM" area where all websites are accessed being housed on a domain with an outdated SSL again leaving it vulnerable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!!

Sever was down for 3 days and not able to fix or give an answer when this can be done. Never experienced anything like this with any other hosting since I have been using the internet!!!
