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- the "WHM" area where all websites are accessed being housed on a domain with an outdated SSL again leaving it vulnerable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!!

Bad support, even worse server stability, and the worst anti-consumer policies around

Bad support, even worse server stability, and the worst anti-consumer policies around. The only nice thing I can say is that support is quick to reply. They're quick to tell you they won't refund you even if your server is co... More nstantly either laggy or offline. They're quick to change your server in ways that completely puts it offline until they see fit to undo their changes, however many days that takes. They're quick to ignore what you say, copy and paste a reply that has nothing to do with your issue, and close your ticket.
There's no excuse for this in 2018.
