In my opinion.... It`s best to avoid all EIG owned hosting companies. Bad reviews are common amongst them all.
I won`t explain the problems with site5 as so many have done this for me already... but they`re right.
The problem now is, how do you find a hosting provider that`s is better? Well I can`t answer that for certain but I can tell you which are EIG owned and which I will therefore be avoiding.
Firstly is EIG`s own hosting provider review page. Surely not I hear you say. Yes EIG have cleverly promoted a review page of several hosting companies which reaches page 1 on google. It misleads you into thinking it is independently reviewed. There is a disclaimer but it doesn`t give enough information for you to understand this point fully. Strangely enough the top 4 hosting companies listed there are owned by... yes EIG. Here`s the website below :
Finally, for you to avoid and EIG companies then best look at the list of companies they own. This is why I believe site5 staff don`t care if you leave them. Odds are you will sign up to another of their company`s without even realising.
Here`s the list below. Good luck!

I have my ecommerce site hosted with Site5. They recently made changes to their servers that no longer supported my website - resulting in multiple errors in the shopping cart and a huge loss of business and income. When I complained to tech support they dragged out the investigation process for weeks, finding every excuse as to why they did not and could not do anything to resolve the issue. It was only weeks later that I found out the errors resulted from their servers no longer supporting the version of my PHP coding, I requested accounts contact me for a refund of the $500AU 2 yr subscription so I could move my hosting to a provider that could support my website - of which their were many - and this would mean I didn`t have to spend money on expensive coding upgrades on the existing site, before my new website was launched. Not only did accounts fail to contact me back within the period I was eligible for a refund, but they refused to take any accountability for the damage their upgrades had on my online business and even though they were aware it was possible for me to host my site elsewhere with a provider that wouldn`t require any expensive coding upgrades they said they could not assist further or refund my 2 yr subscription which had only just been renewed. Avoid them at all costs, their technical support staff are useless, unhelpful and they are only interested in getting your money and do not care about the level of hosting they provide, even if it means shutting down your business.

If you are OK with emails and the server being down 1 or 2 days every month then you can go with them. They have a forum with hundreds of posts everyday where the services are down for hours and sometime even days.
The staff are helpless because they cannot provide a good ETA and just forward the link to the forum which we need to keep checking ourselves.

When I was looking for the web hosting provider for my web site then I compare all the providers on the basis of their performance, reliability, load impact, speed of the server, ping, reviews, network, web hosting packages, prices, services- especially customer service, features and others. After done comparison, I found that Site 5 scored very well and secure good position among the top web hosting providers. Then I buy their Reseller web host account which was having by the company since 2010.
My exp with the Site 5 is very good. I am using their web hosting services from last 3 years and smile is always there on my face during these 3 yrs., as I don?t face any major problem yet and I was getting good and high quality services from them. As I have exp of more than 5 yrs of using different web hosting companies, so when I compare the services, features and other things of providers, then Site 5 is the best. If you are looking for a good and reliable VPS (Virtual private server), reseller account or cloud site5, then try the services of Site 5. They are awesome and always be with you.
Free trial is offer by the company for some days, so if you are feeling scared in taking the risk, then try this plan first but I am 100% sure you will get good results and after trying this you will buy one of their package to enjoy their more features and more services.

Site 5 is just too good. Earlier I was using the services of some other provider, and then I transferred to Site 5 on the recommendation of one of my close relative. I try their free package first as I was not sure of its services. I got good output and then I purchase their shared web host package available at an affordable price. It contain very good features with excellent hosting services which proves good for my web site and deliver me maximum customer satisfaction, which I was actually looking in all the providers. So, whatever I want for my web site in terms of web hosting, I got all from just one provider i.e. from Site 5.

Site 5 is one of the very good webs hosting company, it offers very good technical support as they are having technical expertise that guides me very well on all my tech problems and tries to resolve it completely at their end only. They know that I as their client do not understand tech terms, terminology so I cannot understand the things and cannot resolve the problem at my level, even if they guide them step by step. Due to this, they prove very supportive and helpful and always solve the problem on instant basis, without bothering me...Good customer support...keeps it up Site 5.

Its very bad, such a fraud company...can anyone believe any web hosting company does not offer you the facility of back up of data...if you ask this to anyone everyone said the same thing, it is obvious that they will offer you. But if we talk about the Site 5 Company then it promises to do so, but in really it is not providing you any facility. I avail their service 2 months ago and due to some instant tech issues in my web site; my data has been lost and deleted from my site. Next day I ask the customer care department of Site 5 to resolve my problem i.e. to provide back up of my data, which I lost...You know what their staff told me, they do not offer any facility of back up to any of their client or customer, so they are unable to help me out of this. I was shocked when I heard this answer as data is very crucial for all the users and if any company is not providing back up facility, then whatever rest they offer to their client, is just all waste. Another bad thing is that they have been committed that they will offer this facility to their clients, but they did not offer anything...Its better if you just stay away from such kind of fraud and unprofessional web hosting companies.
