This is one of the best Hosting provider I have ever come across. Their services are very good and provide vps server hosting at reasonable price. I have purchased domain and VPS hosting from them no regrets till now.

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.

Terrible Service and Support. Unauthorized charges, need to contact bank to resolve
Michael J. Porubek,

Aweful service, to be avoided at all costs. Broken network and server, non-existant customer service until you tell them you want a refund. They only reply if you ask for a refund or if you claim you want to cancel. If you tr... More y to cancel, they claim that your service will be cancelled. Yet, they still charge the next month. I have been a customer for several months, and have never otten to properly use my VPS because the providsions made by TheStack were invalid and a broken server was the result. I will be contacting my bank to be refunded for every individual charge TheStack has ever made against me, and will be contacting international agencies to prevent any other users from being scammed like I have. Avoid at all costs, unless you do not care about receiving what you paid for your money. Less
