" I've been caught by Dot5Hosting's good pricing, support, features and, most of all, the huge number of guides available. These are things that make a company trustable. They let you know everything about the company which is important before you join, so you can figure out if they're the right choice for you. My account was setup at light speed, has a very-good-quality admin console, had a domain available and was fully working in less than 24 hours with outstanding download speed. I am a happy shopper! Highly recommended!"
" My site has been hosted on Dot5Hosting for over two years now, and I've never seen a second of downtime. Whenever there is a problem, all you have to do is swing by the site, head into a live chat, and within 5 to 10 minutes your problem is solved. The value is unbeatable, I've been with 4 Web hosting companies in the past year and I've never been happier with anyone more than Dot5hosting. Thanks again! "
" We were new to putting up a Web site and needed a lot of help, and the support department took the time to lead us through a lot of it one step at a time. It is this personal service, in my opinion, that puts Dot5 streets ahead of the competition. This one-to-one service will take Dot5Hosting along way. Keep up the good work guys!"
Founded in 2002, Dot5Hosting has built its success around their carefully put-together Web hosting package that meets the needs of all potential users, ranging from the home user through to the commerce business user. While some companies offer cheap web hosting plans but not enough feature, Dot5's plan is affordable and comes with a wide array of top software modules and features, maximum uptime, and some of the best customer service in the industry.
Dot5's hosting plan really runs the gamut and includes a variety of features for the novice and advanced users alike. Techies will be happy with the 5-star scripting library including Joomla, phpBB, CGI, Ruby, Perl, PHP, MySQL, to name a few, as well as the unlimited bandwidth and hosting space. Novices will be at ease with the free website templates and website builders and the 140+ Do-It-Yourself Tutorials, which is helpful but could be overwhelming due to the high volume of learning possibilities.
If advanced features weren't enough, Dot5's reliability is its strongest selling point. As a top Web host, Dot5 continues to have a good reputation for uptime and backs up their 99.9% uptime assurance by providing a full 30 day money back guarantee to all of their customers. To ensure their commitment to uptime, their security services include instant battery power disruption backup as well as a 24-7 UPS backup generator, 24/7 closed circuit monitoring and a state of the art air cooling system. What's more is that Dot5 also includes a complete backup software program in every hosting plan, so should a problem occur, your files are protected and maintained until the system is back online.
Dot5Hosting prides itself on providing competent support around the clock, 24/7, 365. They accomplish this by offering live chat and email support along with standard call center phone support. One key feature missing from many web hosting sites but not Dot5 is a complete knowledgebase and FAQs which can help explain even the most basic troubleshooting issues to a beginner. That being said, if you should run into a problem you can't handle on your own, the customer support team is quite knowledgeable, very speedy, and only a chat, email or phone call away.
Dot5Hosting features the ever popular vDeck control panel, a control designed with the user in mind. The customer support team excels in its vDeck control panel system, but you will most likely never need to give them a call - it's so easy to use. The large easy-to-read icons make it very simple to find what you're looking for and it's very easy to navigate, build and market your website.
