The best experience I had with them was when I first signed up. From then on, it's been an absolute nightmare.

What Is SEO , Search Engine Optimization?

"If you are in search, do not exist" Actually, the phrase is "If you're not online, you do not exist", but today if no one finds you among millions of websites on the Internet, it's like you do not exist. If you have a website (actually called "Website") what you intend is to contact unknown users to offer products, ideas, services or comments. But keep in mind that no one knows or remembers the name of your brand, much less the domain under which you published your content. Once you have posted, Internet users have to find your website.

Randomly drop my e-mails ALL the time

I have been with this company for quite some time now and they randomly drop my e-mails quite often. They are always very friendly when I call and say "sorry, here you are" and release them. They never have an explanation and therefore no hope of making it better. I have tried "whitelisting" and it doesn't make a difference. Maddening.

dot stinks hosting... the 5 is an S

I've come to work at this place where they have this service hired. Now, i've never worked with this hosting before and for sure I never will again: E-mail is always slow and manytimes offline, websites work slow and the worst is their support problem, i mean support service. Couple days ago we received a contact message from support claiming we had a huge amount of database queries and we have to take down some of them or do something cause their servers are overloading and then if we don't do anything they will take the account down... Next message includes a warning about some ip's suposedly abusing our websites, and requesting to block those ips. We proceeded to do so and when asked about the databases they said "oh sorry for the misunderstanding, databases are ok" then what? stupid robot sending automessages with no reason? This company stinks and I'm just waiting for the hired period to end then I move away somewhere else. SUCKS

works for me

here's some science y'all.... montools.com shows 51 minutes downtime on dot5hosting---for the entire year of 2011! All these negative complaints about down time are unjustified. Tech support web chat response time was about a minute or so a few days ago. I've been with them a few years (4 domains, just added another last week) and I am fine with their service, admin features, performance, pricing. Like another reviewer said, maybe dot5hosting works just fine if you know what you're doing.

I WOULD NEVER RECOMMEND THIS COMPANY TO ANYONE

I would never ever recommend this scam to anyone. I have had a site up for over 4 years with very poor results. Customer Service and Tech Support always give you the run-around and no one has a clue what is going one. I had so many issues that were never resolved and I will be changing my domain name asap. Alert!DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY FOR ANYTHING!! I feel violated and have wasted money on options I never used and was promised to be provided a full refund. NOT!!! They just tell you lies and keep closing your support ticket even though your problem is not solved. Once again, I would NEVER EVER RECOMMEND THIS COMPANY TO ANYONE. It's a sham.
