Site5, founded in California in 1998 by Matt Lightner and Rod Armstrong, is an experienced hosting company. It is becoming popular by supplying satisfactory hosting products and services. But the most notable aspect is its reseller hosting service, not shared hosting service. Till now, Site5 has over 80,000 websites on its servers.
The company often declares that it utilizes the most advanced technologies to improve hosting solutions, which may catch the eyes of many webmasters. After in-depth analysis and comprehensive comparison, we find that Site5 does offer rich-featured hosting plans, but in many other aspects such as security, stability and speed, it is disappointed.
Another downside is the pricing level of Site5. At present, it offers three hosting plans including hostBasic, hostPro and hostPro+Turbo. Among the three plans, even the cheapest one with very limited features is priced at $4.95/mo, which is much more expensive than other peers. And so, the advantage of offering rich-featured plans does not exist anymore. After all, you can get more resources and features at a similar price somewhere else
There is a so-called 30 days trial, but you are required to give your payment information in advance, which as it claims, is just for the possible renewal. It is undeniable that there is a risk of private information leaking or automatic deduction. More information about Site5 can be found in the editorial review section below.
