Here at Ten-321 Enterprises, we are very proud to share the fact that we use Site5 to host our website and many of our clients’ websites. We have had hosting accounts with Site5 for a little more than two years at this point, and have had very few issues. What’s more, every time we have encountered an issue, the customer and technical support teams at Site5 have been extremely helpful and responsive.
Over the last 15 years, we have dealt with quite a few different Web hosts and can honestly say that Site5 has been the best value for my money. As mentioned above, their support teams are fantastic, the hosting service is extremely reliable for the cost (it’s obviously not as reliable as the dedicated server I also manage through Rackspace, but it also costs around 1% of the cost of that dedicated server) and the package offers a great deal of control over your Web server configuration.
If you are looking for a new hosting company for your website, assuming your site does not receive insane amounts of traffic, we highly recommend Site5’s “Host Pro + Turbo” account. As with any shared hosting account, there are going to be minor hiccups along the way, but you get what you pay for (and, with Site5, we honestly feel that you get a lot more than you pay for). If you come into the situation with realistic expectations, I am certain that you will be pleased with the service.
If you do sign up for a Site5 hosting account, we also recommend using Google Hosted Apps to host and manage your e-mail accounts (for multiple reasons, not the least of which is that Site5 has had some severe issues with e-mail servers).
When it comes to hosting websites, Site5 does a great job. To show our appreciation for the service provided to us by Site5, we have added a link to their website in our footer.
