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.

prices are good. You can also pay monthly o yearly.
There is nothing esplicit but after 3 days you have paid, there is no refund option. So keep this in mind in case you want to try this services.
Speed seems acceptable, down... More load and upload files works well as well.
Cpanel also is good and new.
Support = 0 points.
I had an issue registering an account, I've opened a ticket, and as new client I haven't had any "customer care" actually I have received some unpolite words. :D
I then have had some other technical issues, no way = 0 points.
