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.

Worst Company
paban bhuyan,

I have used Hostripples for 2 years and enjoyed their pathetic service.
If you use their service you have to sit infront of your computer the entire day to solve the server issues. In a nutshell, here is what Hostripples is:
... More Pros: Cheap Hosting
Cons:
1. All emails will delivered to spam (Cpanel emails)
2. Very slow server.
3. The account will get suspended every alternate day. And you have to hire a developer on regular basis.
4. IP gets blocked too often. Which means your website will not work on certain networks and you have to contact them and get it fixed.
5. Customer support is pathetic.
