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- the "WHM" area where all websites are accessed being housed on a domain with an outdated SSL again leaving it vulnerable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

Poor Service
Daniel Teo,

Signetique has been a poor partner in their service. email response time is hours after incident reporting. After a major fault for close to 2 weeks, service of the mail server is intermittent at best. Emails that were sent o... More ut have been logged in as sent but recipients have not received the emails. we only know when clients contact us that they did not receive the emails. There's no explanation of what is going on despite repeated incidents reports. A call to their technical department does not help either. There's very little urgency displayed in their service recovery. my entire server was done for more than 5 days and during the recovery, there's very little communication despite reminders for an update.
