We have been with Site5 for 7years. And we started to move project by project to an other hoster.
The following start happening with our projects:
- Login stopped working
- You could not even reset the password (email not re... More ceived)
I had the most frustrating time with the support.

Do not use Blackhost

"Hello ,
due to the way how your order looks, we can't accept it on our network, as it's very likely this hosting to be used as botnet controller.
We're deeply sorry for the inconvenience caused, and we're looking forward to ... More have you as client for some future projects.
All the best!"
Took my money, nor refund, no evidence of me hosting said "botnet controller" I never even got the service running. Absolutely useless, I will never consider using them again. Absolutely fuming.
