Great simple Hosting

I just needed some simple hosting for my blog and this company provides it very well. They are great to work with and I don't have any real complaints. If you want good hosting in Canada, this is a wonderful company to choose to work with.

Absolute Trash Fire (Avoid At All Costs!!)

So I assume by the general consensus of the reviews hear you've got the gist already, but I thought I'd add my 2 cents to the pile anyway.
Site5 was OK a few years ago when it had (limited) phone support but still had some i... More ssues (it's native Wordpress Installer didn't work for example). Since it sold out to EIG a while back however it's been in a state of steady decline. There's been too many issues to list of late but here's a small sample:
- Not updating PHP on my server leading to one of my websites getting hacked
- the "WHM" area where all websites are accessed being housed on a domain with an outdated SSL again leaving it vulnerable
- Charging me for things I didn't order
- The Live Chat box glitches out if there's more than one tab open
- Continuous price hikes with no warning
As such the service has become something I wouldn't wish upon my enemies. There are some aspects that I like such as (limited) access to Cpanel and Max Upload Filesize of 1000mb on websites however generally speaking I'd suggest people avoid this platform like the plague. I can only imagine that inertia is what's allowing them to retain whatever is left of their customer base but it seems like it's only a matter of the time before the sink ships altogether. Anyway, glad to be done with them!!

Don't Use This Company
Stormi Dykes,

Their Customer Service is non-existent. I have been having multiple email issues for almost four months, which is the kiss of death for a small business - particularly in a Pandemic. They caused the issue when they switched m... More y account from a web hosting to email-only hosting plan, but have yet to figure out what happened. (ONE of the issues is that I now get 1/3 the email volume I got before move, many key emails do not get delivered but the senders don't get bounce-back messages, these senders don't show up in my Spam filter). I have spent almost 60 hours at this point attempting to get answers from their Tech Support team. The answer I usually get – when there’s actual contact – is that the issue has been elevated to a senior team and someone will get back to me. No one ever gets back to me and now they are ignoring my attempts to contact them. As far as I can see, nothing has been done to troubleshoot/resolve my issue and I question their technical expertise. Avoid, Avoid, AVOID. Less
