Dot 5 Hosting

Review Summary

Review Summary

Dot 5 Hosting offers inexpensive hosting with lots of features. It's not quite as feature heavy as some hosts but it has most everything a small business needs. If you'd like to save a few dollars over some of the other options you'll find that Dot 5 Hosting is a good, slightly cheaper alternative.

Cost/Value: Another site offering hosting for under $4 a month. If prices go much lower we're going to have to start wondering how they make any money!

Storage/Bandwidth: Unlimited. Not much more to say.

Features: A solid feature set. Above average, but not the best.

Reliability: We didn't experience any outages during our tests with Dot 5 and their uptime is listed as pretty decent.

Support: Their webpage says that hold times are under 3 minutes and they were pretty close. Three of our four tests were under three minutes with the fourth being just under four minutes. Either way that's pretty great.

Money Back: 30 Days.
