    Site5 is the most defective, most amateur and most problematic host I've ever used. I run several companies with websites hosted by Site5 - HUGE mistake - MASSIVE! emails sent to clients and sent to me by clients frequently fail to arrive - ever! I've had to run a business GMAIL account in parallel because without a back up email service, there is sometimes no way my business can communicate with clients at all. Having bouncing emails provides such a poor impression to existing and prospective clients and trying to run a business with a GMAIL account sends out completely the wrong message. Time and time again I'm making support requests, often with little result. Problems recur again and again. I went back to site5 over and over and tried to get my account closed and refunded but they refuse, insisting on making me pay for a whole two years of defective hosting with no way out. Great shame they're not based in Europe because EU laws prevent second rate companies like Site5 from conning their customers with sub-standard services that don't do what they're meant to. Word of warning to anyone in business considering Site5 - they may be a bit cheaper but you'll pay and pay again in downtime, lost business and damage to your reputation. Choose a professional web host and don't waste time with these cowboys.
