I am using brinkster from some duration. Everything is just excellent I never had any complaints from them since I am with them overall great performance. Their are some other providers like domainracer and bigrock who provides value for money.

Site5 had become a Joke

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.

Terrible and insecure platform
Ted Fargus,
2.0
As you can see many peoples sites etc. were breached and corrupt. I had proved to them and demanded the log files and it showed it was not on my side. There are big issues with their platform. When the new company bought them... More they started mystery charges and attempted to bill me for emails and hosting yearly instead of monthly. They also added mystery charges to my email accounts. It is near impossible to get support and I have had days of down time while they "update" their Zimbra or some virtual or router. Outrageous. I have been with them an very long time and used to have a great experience when Jared was in charge. I will not use them any longer and have left their platform for something more stable. Less
