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:

Not Happy: Fat Cow Did Not Leave me
Rodney Sidloski,
3.6
After paying my $3,500 or so for Fat Cow to set up the site the site is up and running but with spelling and gramatical errors throughout plus one or two big glitches that Fat Cow promises to fix within 24 hours each time I t... More alk to them over the past number of month but they never follow through ...never fix the problem. So their PR people or PR firm they outsource are very polite and cordial and make promises for immediate action but there is a complete disconnect with their technical side. Its like their PR people have no authority to actually order services to your site. So a complete waste of time talking to them....they do nothing. With a non functioning site it is now having big financial implications on my company.
The glitch problem...at the bottom of the main page no matter what theme heading/page you click on ie: Become a Licencee, or International Research Corps or Become an Investor or Host a Launch .....when you click on any of these the site goes always to 'Become an Investor' page only. So the site is non usable in its current form. In addition, the spelling and gramatical errors throughout the site make the site appear unprofessional.
