    I would go with Site5. They have been around for MUCH longer than Dot5 (who is only months old), and have a proven track record of offering quality services. Let us know who you end up going with, and good luck

    From what I have read on the forums they both seem like excellent choices.....but I can only give a personal experience with dot5hosting, and they have been stellar in the couple of months I have been with them...Very good support and very prompt.....

    Best of luck with your choice
