Dot5 Hosting was founded in year 2002 and were acquired by the mighty Endurance International Group (EIG) some years ago. Dot 5 was one of the reputable budget hosting back in its golden days. The hosting company was chosen as the “Best Budget Web Host” in a number of hosting review sites including Hosting-Review.com and Top-10-Web-Hosting.
FYI, Dot 5 used to be one of the great budget web hosts and I was using it to host a hobby site of mine.
Unfortunately, Dot 5 service turned really bad in 2008/2009. The customer support was literally non-existent and the hosting servers were having long and frequent downtime. I left and I stopped tracking Dot 5 Hosting since then. To be honest, I am not sure if this web host is good or bad today. The star rating in this review is based on my experience 5/6 years ago. From outside, Dot 5 Hosting price seems attractive; but does it provide good hosting service like its sister company, iPage and eHost? I have no idea.
